Steve Irwin was a dedicated and thoroughly down to earth wildlife conservationist. He believed in what he did and he had a heart full of love and a healthy attitude towards life. Steve Irwin: The Incredible Life of the Crocodile Hunter thoroughly explores Steve's amazing life, from his childhood antics through to his adult relationships - including his wife Terry and their family. There are wonderful photos thru-out. Anyone who loved Steve, will enjoy having this book. Steve, you are missed. But the work you believed in goes on. Thank you.

Format: Paperback
The charismatic and highly animated Steve Irwin was compassion in action for the wildlife kindom. He revered all creatures great and small. His entertaining and captivating television specials were vital for alluring countless thousands of young viewers to learn to apprecaite nature and animal species. He interacted with crocodiles, snakes and dangerous animals to showcase that these species were vital to ecosystems and habitats. Steve Irwin did not kill animals. He was a warrior on behalf of wildlife. He was accidentally killed by a stingray. The latter are majestic and peaceful creatures. Steve Irwin would denounce any malcontent person who would mutilate and kill an innocent stingray. Thank God that Steve Irwin's wife and incredible daughter continue his campaign and advocacy on behalf of the animal kingdom.

I purchased this book for my 11 yr old son to read for a biography book report assignment. He wrote the review below. His teacher specified that the book shouldn't have a lot pictures. That's why he called the pictures a flaw. I'll have to remember to ask him what the book tasted like.

I licked the book because I like Steve Irwin love for animals.To me only one flaw was in the book lots of pics.

This was a very quick read.It was written for those not that familiar with Steve.There can't be that many people.Ha ha.He was highly influenced by his father with a love of animals.Steve had no fear of any animal except parrots.They would always bite him.He became a huge celebrity very quickly with his Crocodile Hunter series shown on Animal Planet.His love of All Animals was so refreshing.We lost a magnificent enthusiastic goodwill Ambassador for wildlife.Thank you Steve Irwin.There is plenty of great photos.

I'm satisfied with the purchase and look forward to reading the booklet.
Before purchasing it, I would have liked the description to have been more detailed about the picture-based, magazine-like format.

I bought this book for my son to use for a book report on Steve Irwin, and he has thoroughly enjoyed it. He told me that it took a long time to take notes on it because he was having such a great time reading it. What a wonderful thing that is!
I haven't read all of it myself, but my son wanted me to read what Steve's daughter Bindi said at his funeral service. I did, and I couldn't keep from crying. It was so sweet.

I am 60 yrs. old and have watched every episode of this man and his family. There is so much to Sat to Terri Bindi, and his son Bob. But Bindi said it her daddy was her hero and when your daughter represents his family as Bindi did it sums Steve's love for them his family as all of us and his animals,we must all follow his dream.go mint mat
