About this book

"National Geographic Little Kids Big Book of Animals" devotes four pages to each of 32 high-interest animals, including dolphins, tigers, butterflies, frogs, penguins, lions, wolf pups, polar bears, pandas, sea turtles, and more. Each profile includes wonderful photos, 150 to 200-word entries focused on each animal, plus facts kids love to know (size, diet, where it lives, sounds it makes, etc.).

Throughout the book (and many happy hours of browsing), child-friendly text introduces young readers to the world of animals, explaining how animal parents take care of young, how baby animals change as they grow up, how they learn to hunt and eat, and much more. The short text and large type are perfect for young readers, or for parents and other caretakers to read aloud to children.

Age Level: 18 months to 5 years
