Bought the book for my seven year old grandson. He has not put the book down and sleeps with it most nights. He is very interested in animals, and uses the index to easily find what he is looking for. Great book, but wouldn't expect less from National Geographic.

The child I purchased this book for opened the book first and her parents had to MAKE her put the book down so she could open the rest of her gifts. The book was easy for her to read, she is 8 yrs old. She has always been a great lover of animals and she is learning so much from the book.

My granddaughter was thrilled with this book. She particularly likes to show her mother animals that she knows and her mother does not know. This will be particularly useful in her quest to become a biologist.
