I just couldn’t resist this super-pretty book! Plus, it is about a topic I just adore, animals! Nature! So I was eager to get reading!
In this GORGEOUSLY illustrated book we learn all about nature and animals. From various habitats to animal families to animals themselves. We also learn about Food Webs and invasive, non-native species and the damage they do and there is so so much more. This book is PACKED with information. For real! It’s been a while since I had a book like this. I was really surprised and delighted. I had expected it to just focus on a certain theme, but no, everything. From animals in cold regions to hot regions. From close-by to very far away. Anatomy of various animals. Even going deeper in some topics, like I loved the part about teeth and claws. Or the one about all the big kitties! And I loved that it showed so many animals, not just the known ones like bears and tigers, but also Lappet-faced Vultures, Bakharan Markhors, Sitatungas. This made me smile~ It was just a feast to read and I was eagerly flipping to the next page to see what we would get next!
Sorry, but I laughed so much when we got to the part about Wild Asses. My head immediately forgot it was about animals. 😛
Most of the information was not new to me, but I did learn quite a few new things as well and I love that. I love it when a book like this, about nature a topic that I really love and try to read quite a bit about, can still surprise me!
I love the introduction to the book, see what inspired the author and also learn of various people who are working hard to help animals, study them, research, etc. And I also am happy to hear that if you buy the book some of the money will go to a good cause!
And BOY the illustrations are just such a delight! Such a pretty style.
The only thing that got in the way for my reading was that the font was often VERY blurry, sometimes I really had to get my glasses on so I could read. I do hope that in the official release this will be fixed.
I think this book will be perfect in any classroom, but also any bookshelf for nature lovers! I would recommend it and yes, yes, I will be buying it when it comes out~
