Ideal for future zoologists, biologists, veterinarians, or just inquisitive children in the primary through middle grades, each book in the Animals of the World series includes instructive animal classification charts to show students where the featured animal fits into the Animal Kingdom as well as detailed information about each animal's appearance, habitat, and behavior, reinforced with full-color pictures, maps, and illustrations. A detailed table of contents, glossary, and index help to ensure that readers get the most out of each book, and a list of additional print and Web site resources encourages students to explore further.
