Animal Atlas Review

Animal Planet did a great job with Animal Atlas. The layout is perfect, with it being separated by continents and biomes. The pictures, though not as eye-popping as some I’ve seen in other works from them, are good. They really showcase the beauty (and sometimes personality) of the animals. There’s a close-up of a camel that will make even adults grin. None of the animals are talked about in-depth, simply because there are so many mentioned. However, the factoids given are intriguing. I  looked up more than one animal while reading this book because I wanted to know more.

Sprinkled throughout the book are highlights such as Surprisingly Human and Roar. Surprisingly Human show readers the similarity between some human and animal behaviors. Roar highlights conservation and endangered species facts that help to bring awareness to the readers.  Also, each continent has an Animal Ambassador. Occasionally, throughout the exploration of the continent’s biomes, the Animal Ambassador relays cool facts.

I’m a huge fan of Animal Planet’s Animal Bites series, so reading this one required a little bit of a shift in thinking from me. Animal Bites is directed at a younger age rage, and doesn’t cover as broad a range. Animal Atlas is aimed for Kindergarten and on. It does what it set out to do, and it does it well. This is the type of book that children can come back to time and time again, and discover something cool or new every time. It’s definitely worth getting, especially if you have any young adventurers in the household. It’s available now on Amazon.
