I do like that this book is mainly photographs
on July 29, 2015
I bought three different animal encyclopedias for our homschool classroom since we are doing Zoology this year. I do like that this book is mainly photographs, instead of drawings. I did not like that it was soft back...I don't think it will hold up well. And I do not like that it doesn't include the scientic/Latin names of the animals. My favorite of the three is "Animals: A Visual Encyclopedia" by DK (it has beautiful, crisp photos, a logical lay-out with colored tabs dividing the different animal groups and it has the scientic name for each animal).
