There is something quite spectacular about this book, and just by looking at the cover you do not realise just how compelling it is until you open the pages and are presented with striking photos of animals. The words I have seem inadequate to describe the stunning photography.
One thing I have noticed working in a library is that the children always rush to the Non Fiction area, and I think there is something wonderful about that. It is like they have a thirst for knowledge even though they don’t realise just what they are going to be gaining from reading or looking through these books. The Story of Paintings: A History of Art for Children is recommended for children over the age of 7, but this book can be also be used in so many ways for children even younger.
