"The World of Animals" by Martin Walters & Jinny Johnson: Book Review

  • Up-to date information on endangered species and environments
  •  Obscure facts and animal record
  • Amazing comparisons

The World of Animals investigates and describes the anatomy, behavior, and habitats of over 1,000 animals. From microscopic worms and insects to reptiles, birds, and mammals, this book will provide children with an insight into the incredible range of life in God’s wonderful world. This comprehensive but easy-to-use book boasts a wide range of features to help bring its readers face-to-face with the science and beauty of the living world.

I consider this book suitable to be used for grades 1-6 in the homeschool,  as a supplemental science book in a standard or Christian school, or as a book that is generally used to enhance the learning of all ages of children in the home.

While it begins with acknowledging that "In the beginning God created.....," continues with the impact of the world wide flood that took place during the days of Noah, and states that God made or created the various features of each creature.  Obviously, this is a Christian, Bible based book.  However, it is also a good, standard text with excellent illustrations.

The sections begin with the simplest of living "animals and builds each section on the complexity and diversity of the creatures.  It concludes with the section on mammals with the Chimpanzee being the final animal shown. 

There is a good glossary and index at the back of the book to enable study or research of particulars.

At $24.99 this is a good addition to compliment the science library of homes and schools.  I highly recommend ""The World of Animals" (Fascinating facts about the world of animals).  Publisher  Master Books http://masterbooks.netISBN:  978-0-89051-617-1  Category  Science/Reference and Science/General

I was provided a complimentary copy of "The World of Animals" by publisher Master Books in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions expressed are my own.
