I bought a set of these to include in a unit on non-fiction text features for my Kindergarten/First Grade class. This book is perfect for several reasons. It is written at a level where early readers can do a lot of the reading themselves and use their decoding strategies to successfully problem solve unfamiliar words. Subject matter captivated their attention and helped underscore importance/use of many of the features we have discussed, i.e. contents page, photos, captions, charts, map, glossary, index. Just wish it showed better examples of labels, but that would make this book beyond perfect. Did I mention that I love this book? :)

I bought this book for my 2 year old son. It has awesome photos, which you can always expect from National Geographic, and great information. I must admit that while introducing this book to my son, I realized just how little I actually know about the animal kingdom. It's a great book for kids and adults too!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Book includes 128 full color pages
All of the words/sentences are in large print
Headings are colorful and bold
Words are bigger words, more of a late K or early 1st grade reader
Very nice quality

I have a little animal lover, and this was a perfect book for him. He is 4, and just learning to read. I was worried that there wouldn't be that many pictures, or that it wouldn't be very long, but this is an excellent book! I was glad for all the previous reviews. This book was just as I hoped. Educational, wonderful photos, very good quality, and long. Lots of time spent by my son looking through this book, he can't quite read the words yet...a few more months.

The content within the book is fine but the physical book itself is of poor quality. The pages fall out of the spine real easily.

I bought this book for my 18 months old son, who loves animals. It has great pictures and he can sit and look at this book for literally hours. I would highly reacoomend it!

I bought this for my 3 year old grand daughter because my 12 year old grand daughter loves the older kids version so much. The 3 year old requests her parents read about animals each night. One night the 3 year old told her parents she was sleeping like a sea otter wrapped in sea weed because they had just read that is how the baby sea otters sleep.

My daughter loves this. We pick several animals to read about each night and she loves telling others about the facts she learned. Pictures are great, and facts are simple enough for her to understand, but still interesting even to me.

The content of the book is pretty good, but the binding is horrible. This book started falling apart the second time my toddler and I opened it up. It's hard enough to keep a toddler from ripping books apart, but when the book falls apart on it's own, there is no hope for being able to enjoy it for very long.
