Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well designed, quality book packed with information Their new series with a sliding scanorama in the book and some lift-the-flap features is packed with wonderful facts, images, and a categorization that takes the reader into thought provoking areas about the specifics of each book. In Scanorama: Amazing Animals each group of information tells about the "Biggest Beasts," the "Fastest Movers," "Awesome Brainpower" "The Kingdom's Strongest," "Amazingly Tiny Animals," "Ruthless and Deadly," "Glowing Bright," "Longest Lifespan," "Mega Migrators," Weird and Wonderful," "Wild's Toughest," and "Camouflage Experts." Within each of these two-page spreads encapsulated bits of information are presented where the reader can see just which animals and insects glow, which is the known longest living creature, which would be the biggest. The quality of these publications is really nice and sturdy. The lift-the-flap and slide/scan features reveal further and quite interesting information. The covers are dimensional adding touch-appeal. Designed for the seven year and up population, older readers will also find details and information new to them. Clearly the publication is designed to also encourage consciousness of the need for conservation and protection of species that are endangered. A well-designed and quality addition to the home library and a great purchase for that young reader who has a penchant for living creatures.
