Book summary

The latest in the Oxford First Books series, this title is a wonderful introduction to the world of animals--a perennially popular subject with young children. The book takes a thematic approach by exploring different aspects of animal life including feeding, movement, animal senses, and hunting. A chapter charmingly titled "Eggs, Babies, and Growing up" explains reproduction. Barbara Taylor, an award-winning author of children's books on natural history, looks at animal classes--mammals, fishes, amphibians, molluscs, birds and reptiles--and covers a variety of habitats: grasslands, forests, oceans, deserts. A chapter is dedicated exclusively to endangered species. Stunning wildlife photography combines with dozens of lifelike drawings of animals to illustrate a captivating narrative. A two-page index makes finding the information you want quick and easy. An interactive animal detective quiz concludes this informative, accessible introduction to the animal world. [via]
