" Beautiful and informative. I was captivated and educated. Couldn't put it down. " said.

"This book has both an informative table of contents and a helpful index, each very detailed and easy for children to follow as they search for specifics. This resource would be best helpful to children wanted to learn as much about animals as possible as they search for this knowledge on their own, without the help of many adults to do so. This source would be an excellent one for writing a report or doing a presentation and children would easily be able to work with the information given throughout the text." said.
