Lovereading comment..

Lead your child through an amazing menagerie of more than 300 lavishly illustrated animals, this fantastic collection introduces young animal lovers to new animals they may not be familiar with, whilst also helping with numeracy and adjectives. With beautiful illustrations covering mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, insects, spiders and other invertebrates, there is something to engage and delight your child on every page.


Animals by Camilla de la Bedoyere

Count the number of fishes in a shoal, find out who has the strangest beak? Learn about the fastest, the biggest, the most colourful, and the weird and wonderful!


When I opened this book, it was nothing like I had expected! I was anticipating another book with a two page spread on each creature - and nothing wrong with that. But this is totally and wonderfully different - it's a veritable menagerie of creatures. By colour - by type - by number - and all illustrated in a way that is reminiscent of old-fashioned zoological drawings; quite superb. Parents in Touch
