A picture book with very few words -

This is predominantly a picture book, with the name of the animal (and nothing else) next to the majority of the pictures. For example... Water Habitats has four brief sentences, followed by a picture of six animals, with only their name.

There is not much to learn from this book. It is too basic even for my 4-year-old and I had bought it for my 6-year-old.

The pictures of the animals appear to be computer generated and are superimposed into their environments, so not even great for cutting up and sticking on the wall.

This is one to go straight to the charity shop - it doesn't deserve shelf space.

Great size -

The pictures are very nice and bright . The book is also suitable for younger children to see the images.
