The Kingfisher First Animal Encyclopedia is a valuable addition to the Kingfisher First Reference series and the perfect introduction to the enduringly popular subject of both wild and domestic animals. Detailed, full color illustrations and photographs present animals in a variety of settings -- in their natural habitats, hunting prey, feeding offspring, or engaging in other types of typical behavior. Photographs of children interacting with animals and a variety of clearly-explained activities provide examples of animal behavior or physiology and make this an exceptionally child-friendly book.

Special Features:

Hands-on activities to reinforce learning.
Clear, simple text is inviting and accessible to five- and six-year-old children.
Fact boxes and detailed captions provide older children with in-depth information.
Simple alphabetical arrangement.
Bold, clear headwords.
Index and glossary.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
limited  Feb 26, 2008
This book is OK if you are looking for a book that is interesting for kids to read or be read to from. However it is not very compleat in its content or animals offered. I am working on finding an alternitive to this book for a science curriculum.
Good for Basic Introduction to Animals  Oct 10, 2007
This book covers a lot of animals, with one page dedicated to each. The pages are pictures with captions, and very little other text describing the animals. Since I picked this book up for homeschooling, I have found I need a lot of other resources (library books and Internet) to get substantial information. But it's a great book for kids to flip through and familiarize themselves with different animals.
The best for preschoolers  Sep 11, 2006
I checked out 4 animal encyclopedias for children. They are all great, but three of them were classified by the kinds/habitat/class. The Kingfisher's animal encyclopedia is organized alphabetically and dedicates one or two pages maximum on one animal. My 4 year old likes it the best. When he wants to look up shark, he goes, 'sh, sh,... letter S!' and he can find it easily. In one page, this book sums up what preschoolers and kindergarteners want to know about the shark. This is truely the best first animal encyclopedia for children.
Nice, but not as good as DK's Animal Encyclopedia  Aug 10, 2006
We bought this book after already purchasing the Animal Encyclopedia from DK. If I had it to do over again I would have just purchased the book from DK. The real photos and minimum of two to three page spread on each animal make it so much more informative.
Fabulous!  Apr 28, 2002
My nephew, 4 years old, loves this book! He loves "reading" all the pages, and looking at all the pictures. It's tremendously colorful, and interesting even for the adults. I definitely would recommend it for any child with an interest in animals, or for any adult who hopes to foster such an interest.
