Animals Everywhere, by Ingri and Edgar Parin D’aulaire
Five out of five stars
As the title suggests, this is a book about animals, in this case they are organized according to climate zone. It opens with some of the animals found in tropical and desert areas, then lists animals found in temperate areas and ends with a listing of animals found in the polar regions. The style of presentation is to have two opposite pages in full color with short sentences that give the name and a key descriptor of the animal. The following two pages have images that are shades of white and gray and describe the noise that the animal makes.
With most sentences six words or less in length, this book is easy reading. It will also work well for a parent reading it to a child where they ask questions like, “Which one is the wolf?” If I had been aware of this book when my daughter was young, I would have read it to her.
