The Lovereading4Kids comment

Children are invited to explore eight different habitats in this appealing and very attractive information book, clever split page design allows them to examine the creatures that live there both above and below ground or sea and it also deftly illustrates the way animals share their habitats with each other. There are spreads on the ocean, rainforest, savannah and river amongst others, one colourful page depicting a lively scene packed with fauna and flora while on the opposite page short paragraphs of text accompany details from the scenes giving readers with useful and sometimes quirky information. This look-and-find format is also very effective and Hanako Clulow’s illustrations are full of child appeal. ~ Andrea Reece

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
