My kids loved reading this book and learning about the many different animals that live all over the world. I appreciated the way that it was organized by continent. It was the perfect compliment to our study of geography and ecosystems last year in our homeschool.

I read this book aloud to my daughter as part of her science curriculum. We both enjoyed the presentation of information and pictures. I don’t typically enjoy reading science material or reading aloud, but this book was great! Beautiful pictures and maps.

We love this book. We usually love Usborne books. They are so informative and educational. Our little one loves learning about animals and this book is a great one to do that. The design of the book is well laid out and designed. It was fun and interesting to read what animals lived in what countries.

My girls LOVED this book. We read it as part of our homeschool science curriculum (Sonlight, year B). The pictures are exceptional; information is interesting and perfect for introducing the animal kingdom to children.

This book was quite amazing. A wonderful overview of the world and its animals, broken down into continents and their well known habitats. Also a section on ocean animals. Great information and internet linked too!
Definitely one of our favorite academic books of this school year so far.
