Item description for Australian Animals by Caroline Arnold...

The continent of Australia is home to an extraordinary variety of wildlife, and this captivating book highlights many of them.

Tasmanian devils, koalas, and echidnas make their homes in leafy forests and woodlands. Other animals, such as kangaroos and wombats, inhabit dry grasslands. Still more species, like the bilbies, live in the hot desert, while along the coast fairy penguins parade to their burrows in the sand.

Through award-winning author Caroline Arnold's clearly written text, young readers will discover how each animal--from dingo to glider, quoll to platypus--is able to adapt to its own special environment in the wild.

Reviews - What do customers think about Australian Animals?

Good Kids Book  Feb 18, 2008
This book would be good for very young children but it is pretty limited in its presentation of Australian animals. There are relatively few animals shown in the book. The entire book can be covered in about 20 minutes.
Echidnas! Wombats! Dingoes! And more!  May 1, 2001
"Australian Animals," by Caroline Arnold, is a good introduction to the creatures of Australia. Directed towards younger readers, the book combines a simple text with plentiful full-color photographs. Animals described include koalas, bilbies, Tasmanian devils, and many others.

The book contains many memorable images: a baby wallaby peeking out from the safety of his mother's pouch, a platypus swimming underwater, a thorny devil lizard trekking across the red sand, fairy penguins congregating by the seashore, and more. Overall, a brief but enjoyable book.
