Books about animals have the ability to captivate kids' minds, teaching them all about the natural world while broadening their minds with plots and topics in a fun, enjoyable way. Kids go wild for animals, which is part of the reason animal tales are just so popular.

Tales that teach

Animal books are a great way to introduce children to interesting and important ethical and moral questions. While the stories will be firmly grounded in the realms of fantasy, they're a calm and caring way to slowly get kids thinking about themes such as cause and effect and proper relationships.

All sorts of authors

From classic titles by the likes of A. A. Milne and Rudyard Kipling, to newer books by authors such as Gill Lewis and Pippa Funnell, we stock a wide range of authors writing on an equally diverse range of topics. What's more, you can pick up whole collections of works by particular authors for a low price – perfect for filling up an avid young reader's bookshelf.
