No less than 2,500 animals are included in this oversize encyclopedic reference. The organization reinforces lessons learned in science class, as it is separated into vertebrate and invertebrate animals and then further subdivided by phylum. Each species gets its own page with dynamic color photos of creatures in their natural habitat, while authoritative information on variations within the species celebrates the diversity of animals across the globe. Biologist and author Spelman establishes an undertone of conservation and utilizes a rating scale for the endangered status of all species included. Range maps are pervasive and attention grabbing, while the records section for each phylum includes superlatives that are always favorites with readers, such as the world’s most toxic frog, highest-flying bird, and longest-living animal. Back matter includes a color-coded and keyed list of all mentioned species. As expected with any National Geographic title, science and geography are in perfect balance to create a strong interdisciplinary resource. Grades 4-7. --Erin Anderson

the photographs of the animals are wonderful, and explanations about the animals were at a level that didn't talk down to him; rather, it elevated his language.
I highly recommend this book for any child who loves animals.
