Why We Love This

The husband-and-wife team, Ingri and Edgar Parin d'Aulaire, prepared this exceptionally beautiful volume for their own son Ola. "D’Aulaires’ Book of Animals" introduces young children to the creatures of every continent. More than 50 animals, lithographed in full color, form one side of a book that can be read page by page or unfolded in a continuous panorama; the flipside of the panorama reveals the animals’ nighttime world. Each tableau presents the subjects in their native environments--from the tropical to the arctic--and is rendered with the exemplary richness of color and delightful understanding of a child’s worldview. Young ones will be delighted not only with the creatures themselves but also with the simple, engaging text, which provides information about the way they act, the world they live in, and the sounds they make. "D’Aulaires’ Book of Animals" is both a perfect picture book for preschoolers and a work of art to be enjoyed by all.
