I first saw this book in my high school library about 2 years ago. As soon as I laid eyes on it, I knew that I had to get it. Now a sophomore in college, for as long as I can remember, Zoology for me was the most interesting thing to study. But there was always this obstacle of not being able to fully participate in the "-ology" of the "zoa," if you will, due to me not understanding most of the Latin language. One thing I will say about this book, is that not only does it remove this hinderance, but it also showed me how many english words have their roots in Latin, the most common ones in my opinion being dent=teeth, pod=foot and derm=skin. Anyway, I can go on forever, but I'll stop here. If you are interested in Animals, this book is definitely for you!!!
