A fantastic book for anyone interested in the many different species of animals. This book is a good reference for looking at general groups of animals, with a paragraph at the top of the page describing each group.

The pages are packed with detailed, colour illustrations of many different species. These illustrations are each labelled with their common name and scientific name. Many of the species also have a short fact.
This is a great book! Its not the kind of book for specific information on one particular animal, however the illustrations of each animal are spectacular! It does though, contain the name of each animal and a sometimes a short mini fact about the animal.

A good book if you like biology of study of animals. I do have it, I own it. Bad for looking specific information on 1 kind of animal. I know because the book is specialized in many animals of the world. So this is a great book.
Really isn't an encyclopedia as it doesn't include all animals. It also uses drawing instead of photos. But over all it's packed with info and animals so you can't go wrong.
We really have enjoyed this book and every kid who comes to my house does too! Great coffee table book...
