Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Formatting: The formatting was way off in this e-book. Pages and pictures broke across pages and some letters were in a different font from the rest of the word. I understood why certain words were in different colors (because these words were in the glossary), but I'm not sure why certain words were in bold. Content: I liked the glossary at the end of the book. I also liked that, at the end of the book, the author listed the locations at which the pictures were taken; however, the author did not list what picture was taken at what location, which would make it difficult if you wanted to find a particular "animal" while in Washington, D.C. The pictures were very nice and I found myself looking more at the pictures and less reading the descriptions provided.
