Most of the pictures are good, some of the animals will be totally unknown to a small child
on March 10, 2017
Looking at the pictures it allows you to browse before you buy, I was very pleased with this book. Pictures of goldfish, puppy, cat, mouse, rabbit, dog, elephant, owl, tiger, lion, zebra, goat, sheep, pig - perfect book to start teaching a one to two-year-old the names of animals, right? But water dragon, platypus, wombat, kookaburra, wallaby, emu, meerkat, gazelle? I would say we will save those until the child is 3 or 4, but when you're reading a book to a child, they want the names for every one. They don't like you to skip! So I was a little disappointed at some of the animal choices for a BEGINNING animal book. Most of the pictures are very clear, but some are so close up that a small child really does not know what the animal looks like - such as alligator, porcupine, ostrich, sea turtle and a few others for which they could have chosen a better picture. The picture of the bee has his head stuck in a weird looking flower so for a small child it's hard to actually figure out what the bee itself looks like. But still, the majority of the pictures are good and I would buy it again.
