Abstract:

Provides in-depth descriptions of over 125 species of animals including their habitats, life cycles, and behavior. The newly revised Kingfisher First Encyclopedia of Animals is the perfect reference for children who are just learning to look up information for themselves. The entries are clearly presented with simple, informative text and more than 1,500 exciting color illustrations and photographs, arranged thematically by animal group. Cross-reference boxes help readers move through the book and find related topics of interest. Covering mammals, reptiles, birds, insects, amphibians, and sea creatures, with an introductory chapter on general topics such as habitat, migration, and conservation, The Kingfisher First Encyclopedia of Animals is just the thing for young zoologists on their first research mission.
