    Although most Dorling-Kindersley books are known for their gorgeous photography and eye-catching layouts, this encyclopedia is downright amazing. It is packed to the gills with close-up photos of mammals, insects, reptiles and amphibians, with plenty of fascinating details on every one. The first part of the book presents general animal topics, including classification, senses, communication, camouflage, birth and growth, habitats, ecology and much more. The second part of the book, which is the largest portion, presents over 2,000 animal species, organized alphabetically by common name. I love this aspect, as it makes it very easy for children to look up the animals they are familiar with, whether they are dogs or penguins. A variety of species for that general name are presented within, so children can see the diversity that exists within each animal group. Most topics and animals are given a two-page spread which features a mix of general text, captioned full-color photos and illustrations, and often a striking, full-page photo of the animal as well. Fact boxes scattered throughout offer a succinct list of information on animal family, habitat, distribution, food, and approximate size for each group of animals. Although enjoyable purely for browsing, an index and glossary are also included. This "feast for the eyes" could easily capture the attention of your resident animal-lover for hours! 376 pgs, pb. – Jess

    Extensively illustrated with actual photographs and colorful images, this unique resource is a tremendous complement to any zoology or geography studies. The uniqueness of this book is found in how the content is arranged. Beginning with a general overview of the animal kingdom, the book organizes and studies the animals based upon where they may be found: South and Central America, North America, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australasia, Artic and Antarctic, and the Oceans. Also included are Internet links, and the book concludes with a fact file, animal quiz, and glossary and index. Note: this book is from a secular publisher and does contain evolutionary content. ~ Deanne

    "In the beginning God created…" not your typical opening sentence for an encyclopedic style reference book! Master Books and My Father's World have teamed up to provide homeschool families an alternative to the popular Usborne and DK encyclopedia books. This refreshing book provides fascinating details, beautiful illustrations and full color photographs, all from an evolution-free perspective! The introduction provides an overview of zoology, a synopsis of the flood, and God's design for animal life.

    Seven chapters examine the animal kingdom from single-celled organisms to mammals. Section One looks at single cell life forms, protists, moss animals, sponges, jelly fish, hydroids, sea anemones, coral and coral reefs. Section Two focuses on worms, snails, starfish, mollusks, and echinoderms. In Section Three, readers will explore the world of bugs, including beetles, weevils, butterflies, bees, wasps ants, flies, crickets, grasshoppers, and even fleas and lice! Other animals included are crabs, lobster, shrimp, crustaceans, spiders, scorpions, centipedes and millipedes. Section Four covers fish. Although fish are easy to identify, not all fish must live in the water. In this section, we learn the common characteristics of fish, and the exceptional characteristics of some, which allow them to break the rules. Amphibians and reptiles are featured in Section Five. Readers will "meet" newts, salamanders, frogs and toads as well as a few of my family's favorite animals: tortoises, turtles, terrapins, sea turtles, crocodiles and alligators, iguanas and chameleons, geckos, lizards, skinks, pythons, boas, and thread snakes, grass snakes, water snakes, garter snakes and a variety of venomous snakes. Birds are next. Did you know that penguins successfully navigate life in the sea by using their short stubby wings for swimming? This segment also introduces us to seabirds, shorebirds, herons, ducks, geese, birds of prey, game birds, pigeons, doves and parrots, cuckoos, owls, woodpeckers, crows, shrikes, sparrows, finches and weavers, warblers, thrushes, flycatchers, larks, swallows, treecreepers, plus many others. The seventh section examines mammals including whales, dolphins porpoises, egg-laying mammals, marsupials, bats, anteaters, sloths, armadillos, rabbits, aardvarks, hyraxes, mice, rats, squirrels, deer, camel, antelopes, sheep, horses, zebras, cats, dogs, bears, raccoons, pandas, mongooses, lemurs, monkeys and numerous others.

    This reference book would be a valuable asset to the Christian homeschool family bookshelf. These books will most definitely end up on my family's reference shelf and I am grateful we can offer this quality science reference book without the deluge of evolutionary teaching. ~ Deanne

    With a winning combination of up-close, full-color photos, fascinating animal facts, and detailed illustrations, this first animal reference gives young animal lovers a lot to pore over. Animals or a group of similar animals are featured on every page of this hefty, 160-page book, organized in alphabetical order. Each page contains some general information about the species, surrounded by an assortment of colorful illustrations and photos that all show off a feature or habit of the animal, and describe it in an interesting caption. A sprinkling of activities offer readers the opportunity to explore topics related to the animal. For example, on the page discussing fish, an activity is included where kids cut out strips of paper, and glue them onto a paper, laying them over each other, so they can feel kind of what scales feel like. "Find Out More" boxes point readers to pages where similar animals are featured, and fact boxes are scattered throughout to offer more information on certain species. A glossary and index are also included. - Jess

You will also need scissors for a few of the critters. Beginner animals include: a fish, owl, elephant. Intermediate designs include: a panther, horse, and dog. Advanced designs include: a heron, eagle, and crab. Make them as gifts, table decorations, or as part of a geography lesson about animals from a certain region like Africa. 64pp, pb ~ Sara

    One of the simplest animators you can build yourself, this is an easy-to-assemble paper version of the Praxinoscope, first invented in 1877. Although traditionally built from mirrors or glass, this version uses mirrored paper, cardstock, and a sturdy plastic straw to bring the full-color animation strips to life. All parts are included, and it assembles quickly and easily without scissors, glue or tape. Just build, slip in one of the 18 animation strips, and be amazed! Several blank or traceable strips are included so you can customize your own animations as well. - Jess

    This classic political satire by George Orwell attaches the idea of totalitarian government using farm animals as characters. The animals try to run the farm on their own and create a paradise of progress and equality, but certain animals (namely the pigs) begin to take control and take away freedoms. With great parallels to many governments, this book is a must-read. A few complete and unabridged editions are available. The Signet Classic Edition has a preface by Russell Baker and is 144 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
