Explore this diverse collection of animal families and learn all kinds of fun facts! With adorable illustrations and simple text, you will learn what kids of sounds these animals make, where they live, and what they eat.
Simple in scope and polished in execution, this paper-over-board handbook introduces very young readers to more than 30 animals. There arent many surprises among the creatures, which range from dogs and deer to snakes and snails, yet Nascimbeni fits a noteworthy amount of information into each spread. Each animal is shown in silhouette at left along with its name; opposite, adorable animal families cavort; terminology for the adults and offspring are included, as are small panels that reveal each creatures sound, home, and meal. The illustrations lean toward the anthropomorphic (smiley faces and rosy cheeks abound), giving the book ample charm. Ages 26. (Apr.)2012 Reed Business Information
