Description

Featuring 15 maps and seven habitat spreads, "The Kingfisher First Animal Picture Atlas" is packed with fun and fascinating information to feed children's interest in the world around them. An introductory spread explains that earth is bursting with life, with plants and animals colonizing every different habitat. Young readers are then taken around the world to find out more about each continent and the many different habitats there are. The atlas is organized by continent, and each map is illustrated with colourful pictorial icons showing the different animals that live there. A feature spread then details one habitat from that continent, and gives the reader a more in-depth look at the animals that make their homes there. Each map includes a simple, numbered and lettered grid, allowing first-time readers to use the maps easily. This atlas is a fun reference tool that will be perfect for very young children to use at home and at school. Children will enjoy using the jolly penguin bookmark and displaying the accompanying full-colour poster.show more
