Children love animals - this book uses stunning photography and colorful maps combine to make this a fun and informative atlas for young readers, using animals from around the world to educate young readers about other countries and their wildlife. Animals are presented by region and each region includes a special feature, or 'spotlight' of one to four animals in the area. In addition, thematic spreads are interspersed to allow kids the chance to dig deeper and learn more about the world through the animals they love. Weird but true and fun facts add humour and even more appeal for young readers. This is a great gift or addition to a library or bookshelf - to be re-read and treasured for years to come.
