This brilliantly illustrated book takes young readers to the planet’s wild regions, including forests, jungles, tundras, and deserts to discover the animals that call it home.

This captivating book brings the natural world into sharp focus. Beautifully colored and intricately detailed illustrations depict places as exotic and wide-ranging as Senegal’s Niokolo-Koba National Park, Russia’s Sikhote-Alin mountain range, the Sinharaja Forest Reserve in Sri Lanka, Daintree National Park in Australia, the Mexican desert, and China’s bamboo forests. The animals that live in these remote places, cleverly hidden in the trees, plants, and flowers, create a marvelous challenge for young readers to find and identify. Each spread contains more than twenty different species including birds, snakes, frogs, iguanas, leopards, tigers, gorillas, pandas, and wolves. The back of the book is filled with additional information about the animals and their habitats. Young readers will find much to discover, explore, and learn in this absorbing celebration of our planet and the amazing creatures we share it with.

Forest Habitats: This book features 16 different forest habitats around the world including the Boreal Forests of Canada, the British countryside, La Selva Biological Station in Costa Rico, which has both rainforests and a volcano, Sinharaja Jungle in Sri Lanka, and Qinling mountains in China, among many others.

Illustrations: Each spread is fully illustrated with bright colors and each page includes almost 20 different species.

Non-Fiction: The first half of the book shows each location while the second half of the book goes into more detail about the specific animals shown in the first half of the book.

Search and Find: With up to 20 animals to see in each detailed spread, this book can be used as a search and find book to try and find all the animals for each featured location.
