I have a 7yr old girl who adores animals. She is a good reader but isn't really interested in a book unless it is about animals. I'd love to get her a big encyclopedia type book, which will give the facts and hopefully good illustrations. She has loads of children's animal books so a few ideas for more grown up colourful versions would be really appreciated.

Dorling Kindersley's Handbook series are pretty good. Maybe not exhaustive enough, but worth a look.

'Life Stories' by David Attenborough. My daughter, also 7, captivated by it. Her attention, initially grabbed by the excellent photography and dramatic aspects of the individual stories, will be sustained for many more years as her understanding develops and broadens. A book to explore and treasure...

If she can read well, how about Gerald Durrell's books? I read them and loved them as a child. Start with my family and other animals :-)

I would recommend 'Dorling Kindersley's illustrated family encyclopedia', its a collection of smaller books and the complete collection makes an owl along the spine. My niece loved it but is 3yr's older.
