The World of Animals

World of Animals - Fascinating facts about the world of animals  published by Master Books, is a fully illustrated, exhaustive fact filled book of Animals for students. The quality presentation of this book rivals that of many popular science themed books for children. From the cover that features a holographic image of a tiger  that changes when you reposition the angle of the book, to the graphics, photos and text- this book is sure to capture the attention of any young reader interested in science and animals.

The beginning of the book features an introduction about the oprigin of animals in general, based on the biblical creation account of genesis.  The book is further divided by chapters based on the complexity of the organism and animal, starting with simple animals in chapter one which features a suprising and diverse array of both well known and lesser known unique creatures.  Even though this book is intended for students and children in general, I found many chapters of this book very informative and thorough.  The format and layout of the book presents the animal kingdom in such a way as to give the larger picture to the reader.  Animals are not listed in a haphazard alphabetical format which makes no scientifc fact, but rather they are organised based on complexity, species and habitat.  I don't think a better presentation or arrangement could be made.

The title in of itself is rather broad- including a variety of animals grouped by species.  This book, although not a scholary text book, provides a well rounded background for Animals- superior to that of a text book. The superior organization and presentation of this book of animals rivals the quality of any animal encyclopedia.  Basically no living creature is left out, from the floating portists, mosss and fungi to the comples antelope and elephant.  Presenting science and the study of animal life in such an appealing format makes is more obtainable for students in general.  The format and presentation of this book makes the study of animals comprehensive.  As a blogger for New Leaf publishers I recieved this book, published by Master Books for the purpose of writing this review.
