Book Review - The World of Animals

I recently received The World of Animals to review from New Leaf Publishing Group.  This is a big, thick, 256 page textbook detailing animal life from the smallest single-celled protists (which really aren't animals at all!) to the largest of the mammals.  I love that the book is written from a Christian worldview, giving God credit where credit is due him!

Each animal type is broken down into different groups (Simple Animals, Worms-Snails & Starfish, Insects & other Arthropods, Fish, Amphibians & Reptiles, Birds, and Mammals) and each specific type of animal is given attention.  The book reads very much like a textbook (for children) in that it is jam packed with bits of information, and would be best used as a reference book rather than a main science curriculum.  While it is not the style of book I would use for actively teaching science to my children, I think it would be a great resource to have on hand for looking up particular animals of interest.  The pictures are beautiful and plentiful and therefore could engage even a child who is too small to understand the wealth of information found in the book.

If you are looking for a beautiful resource book with detailed information about all sorts of animals, but do not want your children being taught the lie of evolution, The World of Animalswould be a great book for you!  Go ahead a check it out, I'm sure you won't be disappointed!
