Product Overview

The celebrated husband and wife team of Ingri and Edgar Parin d'Aulaire prepared this exceptionally beautiful volume for their own little son, Ola, and it is as enchanting today as when it was first put together. "D'Aulaires' Book of Animals" introduces young children to the animals of the world, from the tropical to the arctic zones. The animals are presented in their native settings with the same richness of color and delightful understanding of the children's world that distinguish the d'Aulaires' much-loved retellings of the Norse and Greek myths and their wildly playful Book of Trolls. Here more than fifty animals lithographed in full color form one side of a book that can be read page by page or unfolded to form a continuous panorama. On the other side the same animals appear in the same settings, but with their backs turned. Young children, meeting animals from all over the world for the first time, will be delighted not only with the animals themsleves but with the simple and engaging text which tells the kind of country and weather the animals live in--and, best of all, the sounds they make. A perfect picture book for pre-schoolers.
