What a beautiful book. The illustrations and writing are wonderful. It describes the life-cycle of a panda; and had wonderful facts about pandas along the way. I agree with the other reviewer that it would be better for 4+.
From a teacher's point of view, it is an outstanding resource for laerning about a range of things: fact boxes, different cultures, life cycles, different styles of art etc.
It is a wonderfully aesthetic book though, and good for a change of pace too :)

I've bought this book for my daugther, aged 28 months at the time of the purchase. She liked the book, although the illustrations and the story were a bit difficult for her. I definitely advise this for children over 4 years.

My son had a few books from the Nature Storybooks range and seemed to like them, so I tried this one to add to the collection. I've read it once and thats it, he doesn't want it again and he asked me to give it away. Its very factual, no story, pictures are lovely but not appealing to young children. He is 4 yrs and loves most books, unfortunately not this one.
