World of Animals, Book Review



I am so pleased to introduce you to The World of Animals.  When we received this book from New Leaf Publishing Group, literal squeals of delight could be heard.  The circle? On the cover? It’s one of those photos that changes when you move around the book.  The tiger growls.  As you open the book, you’ll find that it is just the beginning of bringing animals to life right at your fingertips.




P1050465With main categories of

  • A World Full of Animals
  • Simple Animals
  • Worms, Snails, & Starfish,
  • Insects and Other Anthropods,
  • Fish
  • Amphibians & Reptiles,
  • Birds, and
  • Mammals

you may be sure that anytime you open these pages, you’ll be in the learning and discovery mode.


Beautiful full color glossy pages give enough detail for observations and specialized learning.


One thing I have enjoyed about these Master Books – is the lack of “Millions of Years” and reference to evolution. 


For those of you looking to purchase science books for a charter or umbrella school – in the index, there is no reference or section on “Creation” or “God” as well.  I would say – that the text has a Creationist timeline, in another Master Book, I read “before the flood”.  I have not read this book in entirety to find any “Faith Based” references and quickly found the reference above that states, “Many Years Ago”. Normally – DK or other books would throw out a figure like 30 million years. 


We really enjoy this book – and it has been on our coffee table for a few weeks, and will continue to be a center piece to our indoor observation and additional learning about science and nature. I highly recommend it.

      This looks really neat & I love that it doesn’t do the reference to millions of years ago. I was just wondering about the reading level. I have a 4th grader (& a 6th grader)…was just wondering if it would be something he could dive into on his on? Love all of your reviews!! 🙂

        Thanks! I think from the photos and easy short text it should be good. The Yellow Boxes seem to have more of the upper level / latin/ detailed information. You can go to the links and preview the text too. 😉

    3. We also reviewed this book and really enjoyed it. Hugs and have a great week! :O)

    4. I like the “many years ago”. It works for me 🙂

    I love to hear from my readers, I appreciate comments!
