Our Experience- B and C were very excited when I showed this book to them. They enjoyed looking at the photos and then we would read about an animal of their choice.

We also used this book to learn more about worms when we were working on our nature study.

We have really enjoyed using this book for school and for fun.

What C (girl, who just turned 6, Kindergarten) thought- I liked it.  It was a good book.   There were lots and lots of animals.  There were rabbits, shrews, starfish and clown fish.  Momma read to me about the aardvarks.

I liked everything.  I would recommend this book for kids my age.

What B (boy, age 7, second grade) thought- The World of Animals was good.  I really liked it. 

In this book you learn about worms, amphibians, mammals and much more. We are mammals. If you are a crocodile you are not a mammal.

One of the animals you learn about is the rhino.  In school we learned about worms. 

I liked reading about the snakes.  I want to have a rattlesnake when I am older, with its venom taken out.

I think this book is good for kids my age for school or fun.  

My thoughts- I think this book is a wonderful addition to any homeschool or library.

I like the-

  • color photos and illustrations
  • charts listing main characteristics of animals
  • dividing of animals into sections in the “Table of Contents” from simple animals (jellyfish) to complex (mammals)

I highly recommend this book.  It was fun and informational to read.

What Dad thought- The thing that gets your attention is the color leaping off the pages from the stunning photos. The illustrations, drawings and charts add another dimension to this book that will certainly aid in attracting and keeping kid’s attention. 

This is definitely a must have to any collection. The quality is superb and even if the kids just turn the pages for something to do they’ll still take something away every time.
