Get ready for a walk on the wild side through every continent on Earth! Kids can discover the animal kingdom like never before in Lonely Planet Kids' The Animal Book , a beautiful encyclopedia featuring over 100 incredible creatures, from the grey wolf and green anaconda, to the bald eagle and emperor penguin. Packed with facts and illustrations, it also explores our relationship with these animals and how we're affecting their lives and habitats, such as reindeer helping to deliver food for Arctic communities and elephants hunted for their tusks in Africa. Animals are all around us, but sometimes we forget just how remarkable they are. With The Animal Book , kids can discover some of the world's most diverse and fascinating mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, insects and invertebrates, from those they can spot in their backyard to more endangered species in jungles, deserts and freezing oceans. They'll also learn about conservation efforts and how to help protect wildlife and the planet. Dawn Cooper's wonderful illustrations are combined with fantastic photographs and expert authorship by Ruth Martin. Organized by continent, The Animal Book covers:

  • Arctic
  • North & Central America
  • South America
  • Europe
  • Africa
  • Asia
  • Oceania
  • Antarctica
  • Oceans

5 stars
This is a fantastic and substantial hardbacked book. It has such an amazing amount of detail and facts on over 100 different animals. The contents page shows how the animals are split into 9 different sections depending on where they live. There are the 7 continents as well as Oceania and the Oceans. There is also a Key Facts section on each page giving extra detail on the animals shown. There are some amazingly detailed photos of the animals and coloured drawings. We have found out so much about different animals including the common starfish, the red lionfish, the hyacinth macaw and many many more. We loved reading this book and found it really interesting. The lonely planet kids books are amazing and we will definitely read more of them.

Wow what a fabulous animal book my daughter is very interest in her wildlife and this book will encourage her knowledge and her interest to learn more about the planet.

A great hard back book with great illustrations. A really exciting book with key facts covering lots of different animals and far away places.

We have so far look at the koala and she found that the two pages was enough for her. She was over the moon with her learnt facts that started conversations with everyone.
This is definitely a great book she will interact with us and the book and once she can read it all herself she can use it as a learning tool.
