Animal Planet Animals: A Visual Encyclopedia

Introducing the first encyclopedia book from Animal Planet--the leading brand for animal lovers--that tells the story of our planet's animal life and celebrates our vital and humanizing connection with the animal world.

Animals are...surprisingly human. Finding the ways in which people and animals connect may inspire the next generation to be true caretakers of Earth. Animal Planet Animals: A Visual Encyclopedia is a comprehensive look at the major animal groups, highlighting their unique but also relatable personalities and behavior.

More than 2,500 animals from the seven major animal groups: mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, insects and arachnids, invertebrates, and fish are featured in 1,050 stunning full-color photos, plus dynamic illustrations, maps, and charts.

Special book features include:

  • A giant, removable poster featuring record-breaking animal kingdom facts and amazing photos of animals in action
  • Embedded QR Codes that transport readers from the book page directly to Animal Planet's L!VE animal cams across the world
  • A comprehensive glossary, index, and study resources for extended learning in geography, climate change, biology, and ecosystems
  • Animal Planet's R.O.A.R (Reach Out. Act. Respond.) facts throughout discuss conservation and animal rescue efforts

Highly accessible for both curl-up reading and dip-in reference needs, care has been taken to offer animal-loving families less work and more wow by weaving the taxonomic and biological information throughout the individual sections rather than putting it all up front. Specialist authors and life science experts offer, in words and pictures, the most up-to-date view of the animal kingdom, making it an ideal homework helper and a crucial family reference for the school years and beyond.

A beautiful gift for any animal lover, a portion of proceeds benefits Animal Planet's R.O.A.R. (Reach Out. Act. Respond.) animal partner charities dedicated to improving the lives of animals in our communities and in the wild.
