Gr 2-5–Fascinating and little-known facts are shared in this nonfiction title about the diverse species that inhabit our world. The text begins with an “Animal Family Tree,” which shows how species are connected through commonalities. The information is smartly organized in the table of contents by subjects such as color, and physical characteristics such as feathers, fur, disguises, and stripes. Readers will enjoy learning about everyday birds and fish as well as more unusual insects and mammals. The text and striking illustrations will keep readers spellbound for hours at a time.
VERDICT Reminiscent of Graeme Base’s Animalia, patrons will want to pick up this eye-catching title over and over again.
