Animals All Around Us * Forest Friends * Our Feathered Friends * Cats, Dogs, Hamsters, and Horses * Barnyard Critters


Animals All Around is a bind up of four Level 2 I Can Read! non-fiction youth readers from the Zonderkidz Made by God series: Forest Friends; Our Feathered Friends; Cats, Dogs, Hamsters, and Horses; and Barnyard Critters. On the front cover, a circle of animal faces peer down as if in a huddle with the reader; the back cover offers an intriguing assortment of Did You Know questions, and the pages in between are a delightful collection of large photos and facts about familiar animals. Animals All Around offers text that is straightforward and colorfully presented, with attention to the behaviors, physical traits, and habitats of God's creatures. There are a few terms to challenge young learners (omnivore, zygodactyl, ailurophile) and concepts that may prompt further discussion (such as service animals and animals we eat). Throughout, readers are reminded that God created everything and made it all good. Wonderfully photographed and presented, Animals All Around has the feel of a quality picture almanac, enhanced by its comfortable square size and sturdy pages. An alphabetical subject index allows children to revisit their favorites, and 50+ bonus facts are added to the content of the original four volumes. Christian Library Journal
