Yep. It's a big book of animals.

Categories are: baby animals, pets, on the farm, birds, at the zoo.

Only qualm is with the pets section, instead of just bird he writes parakeet why? All others on the two pages are specific. And personally I would have gone ferret or hamster over chinchilla.

Overall a solid board book. Simple bright pictures, and clear text. Little guy reaches for this one often.
The genre of this book is a picture book, and is intended for children (N) birth to age five. This book has hard pages, and bright, colorful real-life photos of all types of animals. Each page has a category such as, Baby Animals, Pets, On the Farm, and so on. Under each photo is the name of what type of animal is in the picture. This is a great book to use to teach young children their animals. If your child is old enough where they can identify each animal, then you can move up to the more cha ...more
This is a great g t board book for reading time with my 7 month old. The book is large and so are the pictures. She loves the bright colors. Since there are not lots of words on each page wI just name off the animals and make animal noises and talk about each animal a little. Each animal is on a bright color square so we spend so e time on colors too. Fun book for little ones.
When I was little I was fascinated with the pictures of the animals, when I got older I tried to draw the animals... Love this book
My kids love it, and I use it for play time too, learning games.

Recommended to Milo by: Borrowed from Aunt Annika.
I like the book, but it doesn't keep my attention for too long. I am not really that interested in the animals. Mama asks me what the animals say, I tell her. But, I would rather look at a different book when Mama pulls this one out. Papa borrowed it from Aunt Annika hoping I would like the big pictures. Maybe if I were more into animals. But, right now I love backhoes, tractors, blinking lights and wooden pull dogs. I am not that into looking at pictures of animals.

This book is great. Just a giant picture book which is great for teaching animal names. It is large though, it doesn't fit vertically on our bookshelf.
It is not as good as I imagined it would be. Many common animals are missing like squirrel or crow which we see daily in our life. Instead of including many common animals, the book has animals like Panda which a baby will see in a zoo and not everyday. Number of animals and pages is very less and not worth paying so many $$.
This is one of those books Fritz loves. Each page has numerous photographs of animals. The text asks a question of the reader to identify one of the animals on the page. Of course, when we read this book, lots of other questions are asked as Fritz likes to identify all the animals on each page over and over again.

This is our favorite book right now. We read it over and over, with or without Mommy, and Andrew cries when Mommy says it's time to put it away. It is so fun to make all of the animal noises for the animals we know, and to point them out when mommy asks where they are. We're also learning about some new animals.
My 10 month old LOVES gazing at all the pictures of animals. It's a short book, but that doesn't seem to bother him. He'll read it over and over and over with or without me.

You can use this book as a springboard to discuss all types of animals or make games out of identifying the animals. Your little ones will want it over and over again!
This is a winner at our house. I like that photos of the real animals are used. Cute verses allow your child to point out an animal.
Robbie Bashore
My daughters absolute favorite when she was one. This was the first thing she looked for when she woke up in the morning.
My one-year-old loves this book because the pictures of the animals are big and I can make all the animal noises.
This book is great for babies, it introduces new (and non-normal) animals to your little one in big bright pictures!
An early favorite that Paul still likes. Made me realize how limited my animal noise repertoire is.

Perfect for my 15 month old grandson. Kindergarten and early first grade students would like it too.
I like the bold colorful pictures that help make this book a good language builder for young children.
