No less than 2,500 animals are included in this oversize encyclopedic reference. The organization reinforces lessons learned in science class, as it is separated into vertebrate and invertebrate animals and then further subdivided by phylum. Each species gets its own page with dynamic color photos of creatures in their natural habitat, while authoritative information on variations within the species celebrates the diversity of animals across the globe.
Biologist and author Spelman establishes an undertone of conservation and utilizes a rating scale for the endangered status of all species included. Range maps are pervasive and attention grabbing, while the records section for each phylum includes superlatives that are always favorites with readers, such as the world’s most toxic frog, highest-flying bird, and longest-living animal.
This is such a great gift idea for the kid who loves all things science, nature, or animals!
