The images in this book are stunning, and the text provides some information about the pictured animal. I loved the images. It would be a good book to show to younger students or for older students to read themselves. The authors explanation of capturing the pictures in the introduction was interesting, but its length might cause students to skip that section. Even as an adult, I lost interest a little bit in the introduction, but pressed through. ( )

It is a visually striking book, with high-resolution photographs of nocturnal animals on a stark black background. This makes the details of the animals easy to see. Each page had a picture of the animal and a brief description as well. It would be a great book to read with younger children who would be drawn to the amazing photography and would also be suitable for older children to read about.
