This is all the rage at our house right now and what a deal!

We've discovered egg laying mammals besides the platypus, sloth bears...sloth bears! racoon dogs...racoon dogs! flying lemurs and desert dwelling "tadpole shrimp," whose eggs can lay dry and dormant for years. Fascinating!

The layout of this book is ideal for teaching animal classification and habitat. The kids are actually remembering where to find animals they want to show me by looking up the habitat.

Amazing photography, fascinating facts and all laid out in a visual spectrum like a glorious color wheel of animal life.

Love it!
