Book Overview

Wildlife of the World takes you on a journey through some of the most scenic and rich animal habitats -- from the Amazon rain forests to the Himalayas, the Sahara to the South Pole -- meeting the most important animals in each ecosystem along the way.

In Wildlife of the World truly spectacular portrait-style photography brings you face-to-face with individual animals in up-close and engrossing profiles on how the animals interact with their environments, mate, survive, and even play.

From the shaggy musk ox foraging in the Canadian high arctic to the angered Scottish wildcat prowling the Highlands to the rock-climbing gelada monkey of Ethiopia, each animal featured in Wildlife of the World plays a key role in its environment. An additional eighty-page illustrated reference section on the animal kingdom explains the animal groups and profiles additional species.

   What a lovely, richly photographed book
Great gift for nieces and nephews. I admit, I had a good look at it first. This is a beautifully portrayed book based on the continent and the environment.
   GREAT book for nature lover!
My granddaughter is 6, a nature lover and for her age a good reader. She LOVES this book so much that she checked it over and over again from the library, so I decided to buy it for her for Christmas so she could have her own. It is a big book - thick with a lot of pages like a coffee table book. If you have a lover of nature, I highly recommend this book. It's also a pretty nice price for such a good book. I write full reviews to help others make informed purchases. I read reviews myself and appreciate how helpful they can be. I hope that my review has helped you!
   Wonderful color photos and interesting details
I bought this book as a birthday present for my wife, who loves animals. She is thrilled about it and has been looking through it every day, learning about animals she never heard and reading facts about a wide range of mammals, amphibians and others. The photographs are beautiful and show the animals in all their splendour. In particular, the cats look fantastic. Many of the photos show animals directly staring into the camera, which allows you to see the soul of the creature. Because of my wife's enthusiasm, I checked the book myself and have thoroughly enjoyed learning about both the rarest and the most common creatures on the planet.
   Nephew loved it!
My nephew is 6 years old and a wiz at recognizing all kinds of animals from all regions, he learned about watching various streaming programs. This puts the animals all at his fingertips and it was so wonderful to see his eyes light up at the wonderful images and additional information that the book offers.
   Comprehensive and beautiful
This is so informative. The vivid photos of the wild are striking. It is a coffee table book, so it is somewhat awkward to hold it on your lap. I sold it but I am glad that I bought it.
   Editors be shamed
Example : The entire New England and New Brunswick are omitted on the Range Map for Moose. Coyotes are shown only in the extreme north of Maine. The region above is far as I read the book. DK was never a fan of . Now it is solidified. They’re kind of the junk food of the books.
   Beautiful animal book for everyone in the family
Beautiful book with fascinating photography and beautiful facts about animals. My children love this book and am so interested in looking through it myself! High quality products are of very high quality.
   A perfect book if you have curious children
The book is my favorite! So many beautiful photos of animals and each entry includes information about how much this species is endangered. A curious book if you have a perfect child who loves to learn about animals. The book is thick and heavy and not really suitable for children to operate, but it is worth every penny!
   The Perfect Gift for Nature Lovers
This coffee-table book is covered with beautiful wildlife photos, but is also encyclopedic in format. My sister, who returned from a trip to Madagascar and Botswana is thrilled with this birthday present!
   A big heavy densely-packed tome and kids' favorite
We bought this as a birthday present for my child's friend, and not only was it a hit with the recipient, but it was a huge hit with all children. It is larger and heavier than I thought when I ordered it first -- a very substantial volume.
