"I really liked the Animals of the Australian Outback: Animal Encyclopedia for Kids E-Book for Kindle. I use mine on my Samsung Galaxy 10" Tablet and the pictures are very clear. Storylines and information about the subjects are very easy to read, short and brief, but informative. This is a childrens book, and my nieces and nephews absolutely love it. I have twin babys on the way as well and I plan on keeping these on the tablet for them as well when they are old enough. The neices and nephews enjoyed the fact that they could turn the pages and such with just touching the screen. I did recieve this free in exchange my honest, un-biased review of the product. I test the products to the best of my ability so I am able to give a through opinion, and I only purchase products that I feel can benefit myself, my family, or my pets. I do not receive any compensation for my review and I do not have any relationship with the seller or manufacturer." Donovan Sizzler said.
"I received this at a discounted price. My kids enjoyed this book, they love to learn new things, especially when it comes to animals." Brittany Brown said.
"Page #2..."inland taipan...venomous snake in the world....one bite possesses enough lethality to kill at least 100 full grown men. Although extremely venomous, this snake is quite shy and reclusive species." Uh-huh. I really don't care how shy IT is. If it's THAT lethal, I'm not coming within a 1000 miles of it, thank you very much. All but the dingo are nasty characters in this book, honestly. I'm not sure I like the wildlife in Australia. Pretty much anything that bites or stings will kill you, it seems. As much as those very few pages of text unsettled me, I'm sure they'll delight to no end kids that want to freak out unsuspecting adults. Let them have their fun...I'm going to search Amazon for a nightlight and tazer. :)

"I got this book for my six year and ten year old kids. My kids love anything to do with animals. I like exposing my kids to things around the world and this book is a good starting place for Aussie animals. Even though these animals are far from being cuddly they are definitely interesting.
Each animal has a couple of cool facts about it that covers anything from what the animal eats to how it protects itself. The full colored and very detailed pictures give kids an idea of what is would be like to see one in real life. you can see every detail of the animals from their scales to the teeth. My kids enjoyed the book a lot. The animals were unusual and even I learned something new.
I enjoy having this book on digital because I can take them everywhere. This book will be asked for again and again by my kids.
I recommend this book to kids of all ages. It's a great opening for learning about Australia. Animals of the Australian Outback: Animal Encyclopedia for Kids - Wildlife (Children's Animal Books)" crewmom said.
"My niece/god daughter is 4 years old. She is not capable of reading yet, but she loves to look at pictures and mimic the sounds of animals while sitting on my lap. She loves the time I spend with her and appreciates me reading to her.
The book overall is 18 pages and I was able to read it off of my IPad. While reading little facts to the my niece about the animals, she was able to view the pictures and be submersed in its environment. I got a better response from my niece with this book vs. other animal books because the images were real and not made from a cartoon sketching. The book contained images and descriptions of various animals such as Dolphins, Octopus, Falcons, beetles and lizards. They cleverly categorized these animals into Air, lands, and sea.
Overall, this is a great book for children that interested about animals and for caretakers that would like to spend some extra time with their love ones.
I received this free or discounted for testing and reviewing the product. I am under no obligation to provide a positive review and receive no incentives or rewards for doing so. My aim is to highlight features and drawbacks that I would want to know about as a buyer. My remarks are sincere and my own. I work very hard trying to write insightful and thoughtful reviews for each item. This helps me to be a better reviewer. While it is true that many items are received at discounted rates or complimentary, my reviews are completely honest and unbiased.

"I like this book of animals of the Australian outback. It starts with a brief definition of what the outback is, which is great because many young readers may not know this. Then each spread of the book includes a large color photograph of a single animal and a few sentences about it. The next page is another photo of the same animal.
The animals in this book are: thorny dragon, frilled neck lizard, inland taipan, dingo, redback spider, camel, and kangaroo. Of course, the kangaroo would be mentioned in a book about the Australian outback so that was no surprise. I didn't know that camels were there, too. (Brought there in the 19th century, apparently.)
The handful of facts about each animal are interesting. The photos are high-quality and excellent.

"I read this book with my home schooled 3rd grader. We enjoyed reading about a few of the animals of australia. This however should not be called any sort of encyclopedia. We enjoyed there being at least two pictures of each animal discussed and that not all of the animals were widely known animals that everyone knowschoolt already. A few of the words in this book were too hard for my 9 year old and required me to sit and help him while reading. Some worss were not words he knew the definition for and needed explained. There were also a few punctuation and grammar errors. I think it would have been better if it included more animals and was a bit longer. A few more details about each animal would have been nice as well. Some listed what they ate and others did not. Others listed defensive characteristics or physical characteristics. I think each animal should have covered all of these things as well as interesting facts about each one. It was interesting but my son had plenty of other questions about some of the animals and would have enjoyed more information.
I recieved this book in kindle format for free in exchange for my honest unbiased review. All opinions expressed are strictly my own." Kryzde said.
"Another great book by Baby Professor! I love these!! As the title says, this book takes a look at the different animals indigenous to Australia. I actually JUMPED when I flipped the page and saw a huge snake! These pictures are beautiful and realistic. The thing about Baby Professor books are the gorgeous pictures. They are always clear and beautiful! There's nothing more gorgeous than the Australian Outback!!
There was some great information in this and plenty of things I didn't even know. My son is going to love this book!! I highly recommend it. Please pick up some of these books. You won't regret it!
Thank you for this great book in exchange for my review. As always, this is my honest opinion. Here's to many more!!" Charity Andrews said.
