Book Review - National Geographic Kids: Wild Animal Atlas

About the BookCaptivating critters, eye-grabbing pictures, weird and freaky facts—what better way for kids to learn geography! In this child-friendly atlas, stunning animal photos combine with colorful, easily accessible maps to teach young readers about geography through the wild creatures that fascinate them. Each world region includes a "spotlight" on animals in the area. Thematic spreads deliver the facts about habitats, endangered species, and more. Careful research and all-around kid appeal make this a must-have children’s atlas for home and school.

My Take on the Book
This book if full of gorgeous photographs introduces young readers to the world of amazing wild creatures that roam, soar, and swim in our world. You will travel to each continent and learn about the animals of that region. There are easy to read maps for our young readers. Some highlights will be their habitat, diet, survival skills, and more.

As you read and look at the photographs , you may ask , as I did, "how did they capture that photo?"

Just a few amazing shots were: a Grizzly bear trying to catch a mid air salmon, buffaloes on the run, a small Golden poison dart frog, an Eagle owl in flight, a Bengal tiger thrashing through the water, a mother and child panda bear cuddling, cute Koalas, mom and pouched baby kangaroo in the wild , and more.

The photos of the animals of each continent shows the specific information about their habitats. When you look at the corresponding map, the animal icons are placed in the specific locations where these animals can be found

I am confident you and your child will read this book often. Enjoy!

If this book sounds like something you would like for your own library you can find it on Amazon!
