FANTASTIC price for an AMAZING resource!!! Great for all ages!
on June 7, 2017
OH MY GOODNESS...This is one FANTASTIC resource!!! My daughter wanted to get an animal encyclopedia for her 10yo friend's birthday gift. I researched like crazy for the perfect book and found it in this book. The FANTASTIC price made a $50 book fall into my "Friend" gift-budget. My issue with the book is that all of that awesomeness and crazy detail made it a HUGE IMPRESSIVELY book. It is definitely NOT a "tote it around and bring it into the car for long trips" kind of book. It is HUGE and would require half of the backseat to open it up!! So...I kept this AMAZING book for MY family (and plan to tell the friend's mom that she MUST get this book!) and bought the American Museum of Natural History's Animal Life book for her friend. That book is smaller and more portable, with nice photography and detail.
THIS BOOK has everything...any animal that my kids can think of is in this book. Maps (for some but not all animals), amazing detail, great photography, a great layout. It will get TONS of use throughout the years! I cannot stop looking at it.
