Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Engaging and Interesting Beautiful illustrations are the main focus on each page drawing the child into the book. Told somewhat in a story form the narrative is engaging and intersting. My 7yo enjoyed the book, especially the last few pages which has a guide to all the animals found throughout the book. Recommended for any age from 7 and up.
