Animal Journal: Land Mammals of the World: Notes, drawings, and observations about animals that live on land

This is one of the books that I’m using as a resource in my Zoo Study Guide. You can tell that author Juan Carlos Alonso is a graphic designer. The illustrations are not only gorgeous but right on point if you are studying mammals. I loved the detailed drawings of the minute differences between species. Viewing the close-up illustrations of tails and facial structure makes learning to identify different animals simple.  We may not have the opportunity to try and identify some of these animals anywhere but at the zoo, but we are confident in our skills after studying up with this book. Mammals are included from every continent, and we’ll be placing this one in our zoo backpack to take along and to use as a guide when we draw our own pictures. There is also a narrative that tells about some unfamiliar species with short non-distracting text throughout the book. In other words, it’s basically perfect. A+

I’m looking forward to more books in this series.

I read a DRC of this book in exchange for an honest review courtesy of Edelweiss.
