The book covers the spectrum of animals from worms, leeches, and sea urchins to sharks, kangaroos, and apes - and a nice array in between. Readers of all ages can learn from this intriguing book, and kids are likely to come back to it again and again. The book is not geared toward children ages 4-8, however; there is plenty of vocabulary here that would stump even lay 50 year olds. Still, even little readers can enjoy and learn from all the colorful visuals.
The Visual Dictionary of Animals is sure to be a hit with kids interested in zoology. But don't take my word on it - just ask the lion on the front cover.
His almost two-year-old sister also enjoyed the pictures. We did the animal noises bit :) The report from home was that the book got a lot of use on the long drive.
Older kids will find challenging vocabulary . Did you know "spinneret"?
