Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The minute I opened [Wild Reads], my kids, aged 8 and 5, devoured them They are filled with colorful, very detailed drawings to interest the non-readers, and have large print for young readers. The books don't talk down to the kids, however. There are plenty of big words to learn, but each book comes with a handy glossary in the back These books help make nonfiction more accessible to children and show that nonfiction can be just as fun and interesting as fiction." --Wired Magazine, GeekDad

"Children will go 'wild' with interest in this Oxford series of very readable and exciting books about wildlife. Wonderfully illustrated with cheerfully engaging colorful drawings of the topic animals, the narratives will pique the interest of the reader These are wonderfully crafted books that will intrigue children from three to eight along with their accompanying adults." --San Francisco Book Review
