The Lovereading4Kids comment

A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.

This is an absolutely cracking book for animal lovers as it is crammed from end to end and beyond, you could say with animals of every shape and size. Pull-out concertina pages and double gate folds reveal the truly stunning size of some of the world's creatures including the magnificent blue whale. The end of the book reveals some record breaking animals.

Big Book of Big Animals by Hazel Maskell

This is a great big book crammed with huge illustrations and facts about some of the biggest animals on the planet. Each gorgeously illustrated double page is arranged in exciting themes, including the largest creepy crawlies, most dangerous animals and biggest marine creatures. With each animal drawn to scale, the readers will be given an idea of just how huge they really are. The final page reveals some record-breaking animals, including the bird with the biggest beak, the world's largest hunter and which species lays the largest eggs.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
