The World of Animals
I previously reviewed the book World of Science – this book, World of Animals, is in the same series, and is just as great! Once again I’ll say this book is great for kids and adults as well. It is also co-published by Master Books and My Father’s World (we love them!!) which gives me confidence in its creationistic viewpoint. The introduction begins with Scripture—excellent!
I really like that the book covers more than just the “big” animals (mammals and outstanding reptiles)—it begins with simple animals (sponges, jellies, etc) and moves on up through worms, insects, and then to vertebrates (fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals). The illustrations are gorgeous and the text that goes along with the pictures and sections is clear and easy to understand.
This book could be used as a textbook, but also is interesting enough to just be leafed through and enjoyed. My kids eat this stuff up—they love reading this kind of thing—and interesting facts pop out of their mouths all the time! This book would make a wonderful gift!
I highly recommend this book!
I was given a free copy of this book by New Leaf Publishing group for the purpose of this review. I was not required to write a positive review.
