Reviews - What do customers think about National Geographic Animal Encyclopedia?

Great for nature loving kids  May 16, 2008
I bought this book for my 7 year old son. He is a nature fanatic and this book has been used multiple times a day for a year now and is still in excellent condition. This book is very clearly written with nice pictures. It provides information but not too much for young children. I would recommend it for a general overview of animals.
Awesome book for any 5 year old  Aug 5, 2006
My son received this as a present when he was 4 1/2, since then my son knows more animals and animal facts that I can even keep track of. He know what part of the world they are from, if the animals live in fresh water or salt water, etc. He loves this book, takes it everywhere he goes and I buy it for every birthday party we go to. You can't beat this book.
Written with the collaborations of capable advisors, this is the book, which any kid who wants to journey into the animal kingdom would appreciate.
Essential for both primary and secondary school children, the coverage of this book is good: just as its details are moderate. It is colourful, well-illustrated, and embraced a wide variety of species.
In addition to its complementary cladograms, this "National Geographic Animal Encyclopedia" included habitat details of each animal; as well as their simplified taxonomies. It is a carefully arranged atlas, whose outlook is educative. A good insight into the Kingdom Animalia!
National Geographic Animal Encyclopedia  Nov 12, 2000
From aardvark to zebra this volume is an excellent introduction into the world of birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians, fish, insects,and other invertebrates. It is informative, concisely written,and beautifully illustrated for the 8 to 13 year old child. Consultants for each animal classification are among Britain's and America's top scientists and teachers. In all, it's just what you'd expect from the National Geographic Society
