Discover some of the most incredible creatures on Earth in this interactive atlas of world wildlife!
This book has sturdy cardboard pages and fold-up flaps to lift on each page which provide brief facts about more than 180 animals from a variety of habitats.
Each continent is represented by a two-page spread, with Antarctica and the Arctic Circle combined. A paragraph of text introduces the continent. Readers can lift the flaps (about 15 per location) to reveal each animal's name and an interesting tidbit. Some of the text is broad ("Dingos are wild dogs that howl like wolves"), while others are more specific ("Beaver teeth never stop growing"). Continent maps are loosely detailed, with countries outlined but not labeled. Some featured areas are noted with arrows, including Madagascar, the Everglades, and the Andes. Several larger flaps and text boxes introduce topics ranging from deforestation to the Great Barrier Reef.
