This book is full of beautiful collage art telling the facts about a wide variety of animals. This would appeal to anyone 5 yrs old and beyond. A great book to share with a child, could be used as a homework resource, detailed enough to keep you busy on a car trip and not so long that you can never finish the book. Mr. Jenkins does a great job of showing the differences between types of animals, insects and fish. He also highlights their secret weapons, skills and strenghts that might not be understood at first glance. He makes the ugly seem fascinting. This would make a wonderful present for a child, teacher or grandparent.
