Discover over a hundred animals from all over the world - mammals, reptiles, birds, some exotic, others more familiar. You will find them classified by habitat, from polar regions to the savannah, from mountain peaks to urban jungles. Every animal is precisely identified by their common name and scientific name, and succinctly described with a fun fact. It is perfect for exploring the creatures great and small that make up the animal kingdom and how they are classified by the naturalists that study them. The Illustrated Compendiums' beautiful illustrations recall the style used by naturalists and explorers such as Charles Darwin and John James Audubon. Children aged 7 and up will enjoy dipping in and out of these books, inspired by the fascinating illustrations and facts.
