This story shows the differences between the animals, and showcases pictures to show you what every animal looks like and which category they fit in.

I could sit and look through this book for hours. It is incredible and would be great for in a classroom. ( )

I really like this book because of the variety of pictures of different kinds of animals. It really teaches kids what kinds of animals are out in the world so that they're aware of those outside of what they are used to seeing. It includes labels as well, which is always helpful for young readers, and readers in general. The purpose is to inform children about different kinds of animals. ( )

"Our world is filled with extraordinary diversity, from amoebas to zebras, from tiny toadstools to giant oaks. The wonders of the natural world are on display in The Animal Book. This guide to life on our planet is packed full of information about creatures big and small. This tome is structured according to scientific classification, with straightforward explanations of more than 1,500 specimens, each stunningly photographed. A "tree of life" greets readers at the beginning of the book, charting the complex and interconnected relationships between species. Every plant and animal is presented in proportion, with in-depth spreads giving a sense of scale to each organism. Feature spreads that focus on a single specimen let children get up close and personal with the world's most fascinating animals, making The Animal Book perfect not only for homework help but to satisfy kids' curiosity about the wealth of living creatures that inhabit our world"--Amazon.com, viewed August 22, 2013.… (more)
