Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Open your eyes to a world of discovery. Prowl through the undergrowth and meet the amazing creatures that lurk there. Favorite animals such as tigers, snakes, and chimpanzees rub shoulders with marmosets, katydids, and sloths, and every animal is shown in its correct layer of the forest. Dramatic, atmospheric photography provides a wealth of visual information. Packed with facts and written in an accessible style, Eye Wonders are the perfect educational start for young children. A groundbreaking reference series specially developed for younger children aged five plus. In a stunning style departure for DK, wonderful photography shows subjects within their natural setting, offering a whole new level of information through powerful images. Vocabulary is accessible to children aged five plus, with the meanings of new, subject-related words clearly explained. The series provides an excellent knowledge base on the natural world for children starting to learn. The combination of breathtaking visuals and informative, accurate text will hook even those children who usually avoid books.

Synopsis:

Readers travel from the tree canopy to the forest floor as they learn about the plants, animals, and people who call the rain forest home. Full-color illustrations.
