Book Description

1 Oct 2010 National Geographic Little Kids
"National Geographic Little Kids Big Book of Animals" devotes four pages to each of 32 high-interest animals, including dolphins, tigers, butterflies, frogs, penguins, lions, wolf pups, polar bears, pandas, sea turtles, and more. Each profile includes wonderful photos, 150 to 200-word entries focused on each animal, plus facts kids love to know (size, diet, where it lives, sounds it makes, etc.). Throughout the book (and many happy hours of browsing), child-friendly text introduces young readers to the world of animals, explaining how animal parents take care of young, how baby animals change as they grow up, how they learn to hunt and eat, and much more. The short text and large type are perfect for young readers, or for parents and other caretakers to read aloud to children.

3.0 out of 5 stars awesome content, poor binding 1 April 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as well as the planets and dinosaur ones. The content is fabulous. Both my 4.5 and 2.5 year old children love the pictures, are learning lots, and from a content perspective I would give it 5 stars. However the pages tear away from the spine really easily. At first I told my son off for being careless but i have subsequently torn two pages myself and now realise he wasn't being as clumsy as I had assumed. For this reason I wouldn't give this book as a present. I hope the printers are monitoring these reviews as it is a shame for great books to be let down by poor quality finishing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I was hoping for 16 May 2014
By dmcnabb
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for my 4 year old son who loves animals. I was expecting a book that was more relevant for much older children, but knew my son would love the photos and could grow into it. The book is laid out in various types of environment - ie forest, desert, and to my surprise an ocean section. There are a good variety of animals, many common, but a few uncommon or some I had never specifically heard of (ie breeds of fish). There were a couple of great detailed photos on each page. There is quick facts highlighted and a couple of sentences for each animal. There was an excellent variety and the book itself is a good size (about the same height as a standard paperback book but a bit wider) and is good quality. Personally I think the reading and facts are aimed at a child around 7-10. I would recommend to someone looking for a good book about animals for children. I think much older than 10 years old you are better going for a more detailed book. I think its great and my son loves it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous educational and fun book. 10 Feb 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is great, it is packed with pictures and educational information about each animal. Each animal gets their own double page spread. Alongside pictures of the animal you get a few paragraphs giving you an introduction and overview of each animal along with some fun facts. For example; the giraffe has a tongue that can grow up to 18inches. There is a wide variety of animals from those that live in the deserts, polar, ocean and grasslands. Also there is a world map at the back that is colour coded to show where the animals live. I thought that this book would be too old for my 2yr and 10mth old. However he loves it. Although we do have to always have to read the great pacific octopus first!

5.0 out of 5 stars Our 16-month daughter loves it 4 Jan 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this as a Christmas present for our 16-month old daughter. She loves the pictures. I was a little worried that she'd be too young for this book. Of course, she's many years away from even starting to comprehend everything this book has to communicate. But she really does love the pictures! The pages are nice a glossy so the odd bit of food or snot is easy to wipe off. The pages are thin so she's already ripped one page but that's not a big problem and was inevitable.

Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great find 2 Mar 2013

As my little one likes anything to do with animals I thought that this would be great. I think I bought it a little too soon, so have put it away for a bit, but the pictures and information is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful & engaging but mostly loved! 24 May 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is a big hit with my 5 yr old daughter. She takes it to bed with her every night & doesn't tire of hearing about the animals.
The lay out is perfect. 4 pages per animal, set with a range of short facts & information.
Would highly recommend to any child interested in animals. This book will continue to be useful as DD reading develops & she can read herself.

What a lovely book. I bought this for my Granddaughter for her fourth Birthday. Her sister who has just started school is starting to read some of the words so is just right for this age group.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the Dinosaur book
My son has the big book of dinosaurs in the same series which is great. This was a bit of a disappointment. Still on the lookout for a good book about animals.
