Alma couldn't get enough of this book. We checked it out from the library, and I felt bad returning it. I intend to get him a copy for Christmas this year (which is why it gets a 5 instead of a 4). It really is like a full set of DK Eyewitness animal books in concentrate form. They did some things to play with the standard format, like having a variety of design templates instead of just the standard white background that works so well for them.

"Super Nature Encyclopedia" by DK Publishing is a stunning collection of illustrations, statistics and facts about animals and their various specialities in adapting to live and thrive in different environments from dry desert to bone-crashing pressure in the bottom of the ocean.

This is supposed to be a children encyclopedia, but I find it fascinating to learn the uniqueness of each animal and appreciate their presences on this blue planet. One thing that I might criticize is that their measurin

This book has some good information, however, if you read carefully you will notice some inconsistencies with their information. Eg. How fast can the Sailfish swim has three different numbers. 1. Faster than a sprinting cheetah (65-70 mph).. so faster than that 2. maximum of 65 mph 3. Fastest clocked @ 62 mph. So which on is it? That is a difference of 7-9 mph. As the book moved along the Sailfish got slower.

This is a book that I got as a Christmas present. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes animals. This book has lots of cool facts about animals, and has great pictures of animals. I like animal books.

Children will love the large pictures, information boxes, and two page spreads on a wide range of intriguing animals. The pictures alone would justify the cost of this book.

It is a non-fiction book about wild animals. It tells you about animals and the records they have broken. This book tells you tons of facts about how cheetahs are the fastest sprinters and how dolphins have no sense of smell. The book also tells you how fast they go and how big they get. Even where they are located and what they eat/their diet.

I recommended 4 stars because some of the facts seem out dated. It said kissing bugs were only found in South and Central America, but they are also found
