Bought for a 4 year old who loves non-fiction books being read to him, this is a beautifully illustrated and well organised reference book. It contains sections about all the main animal groups, with loads of interesting facts about the animals and picture quizzes which prompt the young reader to explore further. Highly recommended, my only quibble is that I would have preferred to buy a hard-cover version. However the paperback is quite sturdy and the pages are made of extra tough paper so should stand up to heavy handling from young children.
My four year old loves these books. They are easy to read and understand, pictures are engaging too. This is the first one I bought and have purchased two more already. They are a great next step book for kids who want to know more about the world around them. Excellent.
I bought this book for my children (aged 3 and 5) as they wanted to learn more about animals and they both love it. It's split into easy to use sections and has just the right amount of information on each page and wonderful pictures. We've enjoyed this book so much that I have now bought more as presents for other children. A highly recommended purchase.
I got this for me three year old who loves books. The text is far to advanced of course but he finds every page fascinating since they have great pictures of animal and he likes to try and name them all. I'm sure he'll get years of use out of this book.
