AnimaI A - Z

Animal A – Z is a large hardback book and has 26 fantastic photographs of animals, one for every letter of the alphabet. The colours in the photographs are amazing and you really feel as if you are there with the animals!

The book is full of facts about the animals like how big they are, where they originate from and what they eat. I like the way that arrows point to the animal and give useful information about that part of the body as my 5 year old son will try to read those comments, whereas he wants me to read the longer paragraphs to him.
This is a great book for all ages as younger children enjoy looking at the pictures of animals whilst older children can read all about the animals themselves. My 5 year old son has spent ages looking at the animals and telling me about them and we have also enjoyed sitting down and reading the book together. I can see that it will become a useful book for homework as he gets older.
There is also a useful glossary at the back of the book which explains the terms simply, so children can understand them.
I really enjoyed reading this book with my son and learnt quite a few facts about the animals that I didn’t know before!
