Item description

From School Library Journal Grade 5-8-- The appeal of a single-volume encyclopedia is its inherent promise of nonthreatening, quick access to concise information. This one fails to deliver because its selectivity and content design make searching for specifics and companion visuals too time consuming and cumbersome. It does provide succcinct explanations and examples of animal classification to introduce the alphabetical listings. Common names, bold-faced guide words, and spacious text are complementary. Boxed inserts feature special topics. The articles vary not only in length, but also in presentation of habitat, description, and scientific classifications. However, there is no mention of the two primary keys used throughout the articles: words in italics indicate inclusion in the 85-word glossary; and upper-case, bold-faced words highlight the cross-referenced subjects--crucial for locating closely related visual representations since only half of the 2000 animals (verterbrates and invertebrates) are illustrated. Among the many not shown are popular domesticated species: cats, dogs, horses. On the other hand, there are seven drawings for "WARBLER." Many of the ample-sized full-color photographs and drawings depict animals in natural settings. - Card catalog description Alphabetical entries provide information on the physical characteristics, behavior, and habitats of over 2,000 animals. A wonderful book for education as well as pleasure reading, March 25, 2000 Reviewer: A reader This is a wonderful book to have on your bookshelf for reference,as well as leisure reading. It has beautiful photographs and interesting facts about each animal. My seven year old son absolutely loves this book,it is a favorite in our household. A must have for every home library!
