Animal Atlas (Lonely Planet Kids)
Reading Level: 4th – 5th Grade

Explore the animal kingdom like never before with the Animal Atlas from Lonely Planet Kids. Unfold maps to reveal animals from every continent and lift the flaps to see their unique environments and habitats. Discover a world of animal facts, life-size photos and creature features-from a bear's paw and a baby turtle to an anteater's tongue and a goliath birdeater, the world's heaviest spider. EEK! All drawn to scale so you can measure yourself against them. You'll find animals living on freezing ice caps, high on snowy mountain peaks, in parched deserts and down in the dark depths of the ocean. They fly through the air, crawl among trees, burrow into the earth, plunge through the seas, and prowl the forests-and range from the tiniest of insects too small to see without a magnifying glass to the blue whale, which is longer than three buses!

The book is divided into seven sections: North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australasia, Oceania & Antarctica-each with a map of the major environments as well as illustrated and photographic depictions of some of the animals living there. Are you ready for this round-the-world animal adventure?
