Animals: A Visual Encyclopedia

By DK Publishing

Did you ever want to know the definition of a reptile, or the lifespan of a five-lined skink? Well, then this is the book for you! If you like animal facts and pictures of animals, then you totally have to read this book! This encyclopedia has information on the entire animal kingdom, including vertebrates and invertebrates, and each of the categories within those (like mammals, birds, reptiles, etc.). My mom gave this to me for Christmas last year, and I read it all the time! For each animal there is information on its life span, where it lives, if it is endangered, what it eats, its size, and more. For example, the musk-ox lives in polar regions, including tundra and icebergs. Its lifespan is 12 years or more, it is not endangered, it is 4 to 5 feet tall, and it weighs 440 to 900 pounds. In addition to the facts, there is also a picture and a small paragraph of information for each animal.
