    "From cover to cover of each book, this seven-volume set is a fascinating read full of interesting facts and beautiful photography. It is a great value and an excellent introduction for young readers to the world of animals. This is a set of books parents will want to share with their children and librarians will want to have on the shelf. Although the series is classified as juvenile literature, all age groups will enjoy the beauty and variety of animals displayed on each page."
