bought it for my 4.5 years old boy who loves learning about the world and animals and just asking too many questions, very specific at times :) he really likes the book, and he used to love when I was reading it to him. He is now 6 years old and though he has even read through it by himself by now, he still enjoys going over it every now and then.

He treasures it a lot and likes to go through it especially when looking for ideas for what animals to draw or write about. It's divided into sections- mammals/reptiles etc and explains all the facts in a very child-friendly, clear to understand language, with lovely pictures. Not a thick book, just the right amount of information for that early primary age.

By the way, inside the book, there is a nice link to a website with a few more photos, videos etc, which my boy liked as well.

I have just only recently decided to purchase a more grown up version with more facts, as my son has by now memorised almost everything in this one ;)

HASH(0x8d5daa14) out of 5 stars bought for 1st grader 14 April 2011
By homeschoolmom2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was bought as part of our home school curriculum and I have since found that usbone books tend to not be my favorite. (Don't freak out yet) I know everyone loves these books but for me and my kids, the pages are too packed. There are a lot of smaller pictures with boxes and bubbles with snippets of information and trivia. I do like that is it written in a simple english form for young readers but the internet links aren't always what we are looking for and often we don't even look. We went with a different publisher for our science encyclopedia needs. Harder to find used and more expensive but 'king fisher' books are worth every penny. We love usborne board books and have so many of their readers, but once we got to the "educational" level, they got too visually crowded and overwhelmed our family.

HASH(0x8d2b15f4) out of 5 stars Kids Love Animals! 25 Mar. 2010
By Lindsey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My children (2 and 3) love this book. Much of it is over their heads, but they learn a little more each time they read through it. I was expecting the book to be about specific animals, but found that it covers animal groups (mammals, reptiles, etc.). I'm fine with that. The kids love learning the differences in mammals and birds!
I did not give this book 5 stars because I felt it was disjointed in the terminology. It goes from mammals, reptiles, and amphibians to "creepy-crawlies" and "water life." I wish they would keep the same level of technicality throughout.
Overall, this is a good book! It has lots of information for your little one to pour over.
