My Son (aged 6) thinks this book is brilliant. It is a lovely book which I think would appeal to a variety of ages young and old.  It is a lovely hard backed book which contains good thick quality pages which will withstand plenty of handling which is what you want.  The illustrations in the book are bright colourful pictures which are very clear and features common and uncommon animals.  The book has a mixture of simple and more detailed text which is at an ideal for either looking at pictures, reading to self or reading together and think it will be a book referred to many times over the next few years for general reference and school projects and learning for the whole family.  I can't find any negatives and would recommend to anyone wanting to encourage an interest in animals and/or learning in children, a great reference book.

What a lovely first encyclopedia of animals. My grandson is only 3 so is a little young for this but loves it. At the minute he loves looking at the photographs and identifying different animals. The book is colourful and has a really clean layout which encourages children to work their way through the book. A good balance of photograph, drawings and text means that Tommy can 'grow' with it, it's certainly going to be one that we return to on a regular basis. The fact that it is physically such a heavy book means Tommy already sees it as different from his other books and as 'special'

This is a fantastic book, much bigger than we were expecting, with loads of good information in it. It's clear and well laid out and is appealing to children. My 5 year old has been dipping in and out of it and we have been reading sections together. There are lots of 'did you know' facts that my son has really taken to, rushing out to tell his dad new things all the time! There are four sections: an introductory 'all about animals' one, 'amazing animals' looking at individual interesting animals, 'animal antics' which explains particularly interesting or quirky information about certain animals and 'more very important animals' which looks at things like movement and coat pattern. Great non-fiction book to have, would make a lovely present.

II don't wven know where to start this book is so amazing. Both my 3 and 7 year old have spent the last three days sharing this book between them at every opportunity! It's so full of exciting and interesting information about so many different animals. 
There's a combination of short facts and bigger texts so it's really suitable for many ages. The pictures and photographs in the book make it really appealing. Myself and my partner have even enjoyed learning new things. I especially like the page that tells you all the names for a group of animals. Who knew a group of flamingos was a flamboyance?? 
My daughter really liked the page with mythical creatures it was so interesting. 
I would definitely reccomend this book to any one with children below the age of around 11. There is so much you can learn and explore.

What a wonderful book this is, - my grandchildren, 5 & 7, leapt on it when we came in from school. They didn't ask me to read to them as they were engrossed for hours in looking at page after page of beautiful illustrations and reading fascinating facts for themselves. It was unsurprisingly opened again before breakfast next day.
A high quality hardback of over 200 pages with everything a young child could possibly want to know about animals within it. One of the best educational books I've ever seen...Thank you Toppsta!

A delightful book to return to time and time again. My little boy can't read much of the words at the moment but loves flicking through the pages to see the beautiful photos and illustrations. We can easily pick it up and read a page or so at a time. Perfect for animal lovers.

Leo really enjoys learning about different animals. This book is fantastic quality and packed with lots of beautiful photos and fun illustrations. The facts and information are laid out clearly, making it ideal for younger children and easy for them to understand. Leo has used this book so many times with his homework from school. It covers many of the topics he has been learning about such as Minibeasts, Dinosaurs, Habitats and a Frog's Life Cycle. It's a fantastic book to him to read, learn and discover about animals.

I love animals and this book is brilliant.

The book tells you all about animals that live on land and in the water. It also tells you about birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians and mini beasts.

I like this book as it tells you about their shape and how their bodies are supported. Showing skeletons and also spineless animals.
There are lots of facts and great images.

The book contains virtually any animal and I like how it gives me facts to remember.

The book is am mixture of photographs and illustrations which makes it more fun to normal encyclopaedias and at the back of the book you can find an explanation of the words used in the book to help you understand a little better.

I love animals and this book is perfect for me as it helped me to learn even more. I like that at the top of the page there is a small code with an image of the animal to the top so if I flick through I can easily see what topic is on those pages for example whether it is all about animals, amazing animals, animal antics, more very important animals.

My new favourite book!
