This is a gorgeous book, chock full of bright, stimulating drawings that children from 1 through to 3 years old will adore! It's a lift the flap book, which is just right to engage children in the different pages, pets, jungle animals, forest animals for example. I really loved the 'what am I?' page, and 'what sound do these animals make?' page.  It would make a perfect gift for a boy or a girl. Just simply lovely!

My son (and I) absolutely adore this book! It is superb - colourful, clear and engaging, it covers a wide variety of animal themes with lots of flaps to lift up, explore and discover. It has a good range of animals including sloth, Panther, hummingbird, gecko and armadillo which was a pleasant change from the usual animal books. I just can't recommend this book enough - it gets a huge thumbs up from our family.

Wow! What can I say this is a fantastic book. It's made of hard cardboard rather than paper, so little hands would find it difficult to tear or rip the pages. The colours jump out at you and the animals illustrated are cute to look at making them more appealing to younger children. Each page is as exciting as the next as there are lots of little flaps to be lifted and under the flaps are animals, birds or insects. Each animal is labelled and there are over 100 so there are lots to learn. Other than labelling the animals there are a couple of sentences that rhyme telling you about their habitat. 
I would definitely recommend this book as it will help teach your children all about the animals and their surroundings.

This book is just brilliant. Each page teaches something new about animals (their home, names of young, sound, colour etc) and it is the perfect amount of picture of text. It's durable thanks to the material and a really appealing look. I'm going to be investigating the series now!

We love this book. Far better than what I imagined (and I thought it would be good). I love that its a large hardback, but the pages are like a board book, lovely and sturdy, brilliant for a toddler. Sophie loves flipping the pages and playing hide and seek with the animals. It has great illustrations, lovely and simple and clear. Its very educational, not only for first reading words but for first words. I have her toy animals lined up as we go through all the names. A great reminder for us parents to be going through all the animals, great learning interactive fun. I love it links the animals with what noises they make where they live etc, brilliant for pre school learning. Farms and jungles, all sorts of un to be had with this book. Every pre schooler should have this book. Sophie has sat for ages with it.

We adore this book. It's chunky and has loads of flaps to lift. Each page is different and encourages young children to broaden their vocabulary as well as learn a bit more about a range of animals. The illustrations are really bright and so cute too.

This is a fantastic book. It is a lift-the-flap book which is always good for little ones as they can easily interact with the book and the story. This book focuses on different animals and shows such variety. Each double page has a specific scene which is beautifully illustrated. It shows many different animals and has many more hidden under the different flaps. There is a focus to each page whether it be questions about names for animals and their young or questions about where they might live or even what they look like. It is really impressive with so many different types of animals featured. A really fun and educational book.

This is a book to learn without noticing it. You are searching or looking while you learn names, sounds or even colours. It's perfect for 1 year to 5, in the beginning the parent will be the only one talking, but month by month the baby will start learning and trying to discover new things in the book. 
It's the perfect book to learn everything about animals. I highly recommend it!
