Every page is illustrated, but far too long 107 p to be considered a picture book.

Without a doubt this is a gorgeous book of illustrations, sized to be a colorful tabletop book and to appeal to young eyes Its bulk and cursive text, complex organization mean it will work best with support from adults Even so, the various individual entries descriptions will be favored or less favored throughout the book At least that was my reaction The organizing approach should make it well suited to the youngest Size Color and Shape Homes Babies Action but it offers too little for older rea [...]

Five stars This is a gorgeous book of free verse verse about the living creatures among us Davies poetry is easy to read and full of information about each creature, but Peter Horacek s illustrations are what puts this book over the top This is a large book, so the illustrations are able to spread all over the pages and they do Add in the vibrant colors and details and your younger child will want to sit with you and talk about each animal Older children might want to loose themselves in those i [...]

This is gorgeous A big, heavy book that is meant for small hands to join large in reading The illustrations are incredible, the text is informative, and together they make an engaging book The one qualm I had was that some of the descriptions flowed much better in their poetic rhythm, so the ones that didn t felt jarring as I read straight through You might not notice it as much if you jump around I appreciated the sections of the book with different groupings, and all of the information to ear [...]

a pretty, eloquent, first animal resource for young readers.Brevity is the name of this game with the animal descriptions, but it written in way which I think will pique curiosity to learn so, obviously not every animal is featured, but it is a pretty vast in covering most animal species, for a children s book anyway.

This is so much than a first book of animals It has a wide variety of species, with gorgeous illustrations and poems for each animal There is so much that can be done in a classroom with this book It sold me with the whale shark poem comparing her back to the starry sky, which is a comparison I have always made Highly recommended for school and home libraries.

Nicola Davies is a wonderful author She does a good job at writing children s books that speak to children In this book, Davies tells of dozens and dozens of different animals Some of the verse rhymes, some is simply descriptive, and some is downright poetic.

This book would make a great gift Each spread introduces a new animal through poetry and an illustration of the animal The artwork is expressive Many times I prefer photos for books about animals but this time I felt the illustrations were superb.

This book is utterly beautiful The illustrations are delicate drawings full of colour that genuinely look like photographs in some places I absolutely loved them They encompass a large portion of each page, and are mostly of various animals and their homes some were like paintings than drawings which added a little texture to the page.Ultimately this book introduces your little ones to lots of different animals from various different continents and, mostly through rhyme, tells them a tiny bit [...]

The amazingly diverse animal species that can be found around the world are the subject of short, informative poems in this oversized, dramatically illustrated book Entries are organized into sections on size, color and shape, action, babies, and homes that bridge numerous continents and biomes For instance, the section on animals in action features a cheetah, followed by Arctic terns, then a koala, sloth, fireflies, and bees The heavy, glossy pages, loaded with dramatic illustrations make this [...]
