I really can't say enough about this encyclopedia. If you've read my reviews, we homeschool our 6 and 10 year olds and use various books from amazon to assist in their education. Our 6 year old is capable of learning quite advanced scientific concepts, but when it comes to reading from a book, she learns best with clear information that isn't too detailed. This book works very well with her bio science curriculum, as it's organized by habitats. The sections are: Polar Regions, Cool Forests, Rainforests, Grasslands, Deserts, Mountains and Caves, Freshwater Habitats, Ocean Habitats, and Towns and Cities.

Like all DK books, the photos are phenomenal with close-ups of various animals. Although the book won't have enough scientific depth for our 10 year old, I'm certain that she's going to spend hours flipping through it as well. The organization by habitat is just such a wonderful way of simplifying the study of animals.

Wish I could give it 6 stars!

I ordered this for my four-year-old grandson who I am sitting for this summer. He is heavily into frogs and snakes and lizards and he loves this book. He carries it with him and is constantly asking to have it read to him. I had no idea he would love it this much. It is a wonderful learning tool and has spurred his interest in books.

My daughter is 5 and we regularly look up information in this book. While the computer is very useful, too, I want her to know there are things called BOOKS that one can actually use to get information. The pictures are interesting and the sentence structure short and to the point so she can test her reading skills. I would recommend this for any young child who is interested in examining the great information contained in an encyclopedia. It is very simple..so don't expect wikipedia. And some somewhat unusual animals are not featured.

Our 3 and 5 year old daughters love this encyclopedia. It is one of the most asked for books in our house, and is of the DK quality that we have come to expect. It is broken down into categories with great photos and concise explanations that are just right for children. Even though our girls are enjoying it at a young age, it is an encyclopedia that they won't outgrow too soon.

My son prefers reading a few pages out of this to reading bedtime stories. It goes through all different habitats and has tidbits on animals that live there. Each page has beautiful photographs and a smattering of factoids. The introductions to each habitat provide some good basic science. If you are looking for the kind of encyclopedia where you look up a topic and read an article, this is not that kind. It is more a scientific picture book for browsing. Even reading outloud is a bit challenging because you are generally not reading paragraphs, but a collage of captions and labels. It is similar to other DK Science or Usborne Science books in that way. None of this keeps it from being fascinating to the children. It is very visually stimulating.

It's really great, but it feels a little bit too crowded.
Almost hard to follow anything in a continuous way.
Gorgeous pictures and very informative I just wish it was a bit better organized.
Maybe I'm just a bit more old school I suppose.

The book is very well done as are all DK books. I bought it for a very advanced 1st grader but found it has too much information on each page for her. Hopefully it will interest her better in a few years.
