Discover animals on every continent in a worldwide tour for kids ages 6 to 9

Spark children's curiosity and imagination with a whole world of amazing animals! This animal atlas introduces kids to more than 180 animals from all over the globe. They'll explore colorful maps of every continent and ocean and learn all about the creatures that live there. From the smallest insects to the biggest whales, kids can meet each one up close with photos and find out fun facts about their natural environment.

Kids will discover animals like:
  • CHIMPANZEE, African Rainforests—Chimpanzees live in trees and grasslands. Like other apes, they are highly intelligent. They also laugh when they're playing!
  • TARANTULA, Central America—Tarantulas are large spiders. They have eight legs like other spiders, but they do not spin webs. Instead, they live in an underground burrow.
  • SIBERIAN CHIPMUNK, Northern Asia—Like all chipmunks, a Siberian chipmunk has stripes along its back. It also has cheek pouches that carry food—kind of like grocery bags!
  • BELUGA WHALE, Arctic Ocean—This white whale produces all sorts of sounds and has a thick layer of fat under its skin, called blubber.

Encourage kids' passion for the natural world with this entertaining choice in educational animal books for kids.
