    A gorgeous gorgeous book that I would have absolutely died for when I was about 9 or 10 and still enjoyed uite a lot now It is full of fun pictures and facts about animals and is nicely organized by taxonomic order The entries are short naturally but it is an enjoyable overview My only complaint is that I wish it were longer I was a little disappointed not to see entries on North African Hedgehogs or Humboldt Suid but I also understand that those are particularly nerdy interests of mine and I can't expect this book to cover every animal If you have a child in your life who is interested in animals or biology go out and buy this for them now According to FTC regulations I certify that I received this book through the Goodreads First Reads program

    I’ve always loved encyclopedias and I used to read ours when I was a kid Miss K and I have been reading this one together and we love it It’s full of information for all kinds of animals It has full color photos all the way through The text is much advanced than the Little Kid’s National Geographic books my children usually read but it’s written with kids in mind Kids between the ages of 9 and 14 will especially like this book because it has the best of both worlds It’s visually appealing and interesting while also being very in depth and informativeOne thing you should know about this book is that it’s enormous When they say encyclopedia they mean it It’s not a lightweight picture book It is a large heavy book designed to give kids lots of information about the animal kingdomThe other thing I like about it is the wide variety of animals it covers It goes over the exotic animals but it also explores common and North American animals as wellIf you have an animal lover or a nonfiction reader in your house look for this visual encyclopedia at your local library or give it as a birthday gift It’s an amazing book to have on your shelfSource I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

    Aimed at 8 12 year olds Animal Planet Animals A Visual Encyclopedia doesn’t uite have the easy going fun of their Animal Bites series which is aimed at a younger audience but nevertheless it delivers lovely pictures though the uality of the electronic version is I’m gathering rather degraded from what you’d see in the actual book with concise explanations that serve to give a fascinating overview to the animals we share this planet withEach animal ‘card’ for lack of a better word provides the animal’s common name scientific name size habitat and food preferences They also include a couple small factoids that might interest young readers The numbers are given in both metric and imperial so there’s no in head conversion reuired There are also About Me Fun Facts ROAR and Surprisingly Human pieces scattered throughout which are very brief but relate interesting tidbits relevant to the animals being discussedOverall this would be a great ‘general interest’ gift for the middle graders in the household who love animals but don’t have any specific critters they fixate upon It would also be a good starting point for various assigned reports on animals for science and or biology classes At 304 pages there’s tons of animals for kids and adults to discover and learn aboutDisclaimer I received a copy of this book free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Visit Scifi and Scary's Book Reviews for many other Science Fiction Horror Thriller and Kids' Books reviews

    Animal Planet Animals is a delightful visual and informational book packed with joy that only the Animal Planet could deliver The images are so clear and entertaining and there are so many of them There are many small pieces of information on each of the animal such as size habitat food and something special just about them Also how they and human are alike The book covers such a variety of animals sea life insects or Every page is filled with intriguing info and wonderful images I have looked at this book a few times already and it keeps drawing me back It is not a small book either The love of animals they put into this book is obvious the pictures are worth every penny The information is written in a fun natural way and not like a textbook This book is a pure joy to behold A great gift for that someone who has everything or who loves animals Kids would love this book younger ones would need someone to read to them or they could just enjoy the gorgeous pictures I received this book from NetGalley for a honest review and it in no way effected my rating or review content

    Truly a visual encyclopedia this large non fiction book is filled with close up photographs of animals reptiles amphibians fish and arthropodsThe first four or five photographs beginning with the cover are of baby animals and had me saying awe which attracted my colleagues to my sideInformation on animal features habitat and behavior start us off Each section begins with All About animal typeMaps and charts are included Very child and family friendly

  8. Pam Mooney Pam Mooney says:

    I love this book The color photos are so real you expect that you can reach out and touch the animal Beyond the photos I enjoyed the habitat information and the how the animals spend their time and distinguish males from females This book is great for all ages and the poster is awesome My girls sat and looked through for hours the birds seemed to be their favorite A good read

  9. Cara Byrne Cara Byrne says:
