4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Young Mensan BookParade on January 18, 2013
Format: Hardcover
"Animals Around the World" is about animals all around the world (as the title said) and even showed a little map of basic animal habitats that I quite like.

I think other kids would enjoy this book as a quick reference to animals, but if they want deeper knowledge, they should instead refer to a more complex animal encyclopedia. This book seems appropriate for beginning zoologists. It tells them a few blurbs on each animal so they can see which animal they like and want to explore further. It is organized well and has very interesting pictures.

One of my favorite parts was the Water World section with all the water bugs and it mentioned an air - breathing water spider that created a diving bell - web thingy. I had no idea this spider existed! This was one of the creatures I wish they could have expanded on. They did not even tell me the NAME of it!

I would rate this book 4 stars because I think it could have expanded on the facts and a few were at least partially false. For example, they said all bats were nocturnal and the Hipposideros ruber on São Tomé Island (West Africa) and the Livingstone flying fox are both partially diurnal. It also left out the Mudskipper and Okapi as animal species.

I ordered the book for my 3 year old grandson and he loves it. There are a lot of pictures and a variety of animals - I"m sure he will like it as he starts reading later on.
