The page-by-page organization reveals so much about our world that bouncing around on the Web would not. Children and autodidacts like me can readily zoom in on the notes about the most interesting-looking samples, discover that there's not enough information there, and then go to the internet to learn more. It definitely does not stand alone, however, as each entry is so very brief.

Books like Actual Size are neces Even in this day of internet- almost everywhere, books like this are valuable.

Books like Actual Size are necessary, for example, because even though a size note is given for each critter, adjacent examples are not at all to scale. Also, the blurbs are random: I really appreciate the 'debate' boxes that emphasize the concept of 'science as a verb,' so to speak.

Too often scientific information has been presented as established fact; this book reminds the reader that scientists are constantly working towards better understandings. For example, I learned from this that pandas are, after all, sufficiently akin to black, brown, and polar bears to be called 'panda bears. I learned lots of interesting stuff. For example, did you know that Mangos and Cashews are of the same family, and that they are of the same order as Maples and Citrus?

And check out the markings on the Blue-Ringed Octopus! Even though I did not read every word who could?! I did spend a full moment, at least, on every page, and so I am counting it as 'read. Apr 20, Rebekah rated it it was amazing Shelves: A gorgeously photographed visual dictionary of living life on earth. I checked this out so my ESL student and I can go over some vocabulary and pronunciation. This would also make a great coffee table book.

May 22, Rini rated it it was amazing Shelves: But in the year that I've owned it, this book has sustained me through many sick days passed out on the couch and lazy days when TV sucks and times when I just needed to shut everything out and look at pictures of owls and flowers.

This book has made me happier than any book I've ever owned. The only word I can think of to describe it is: Ok, that is 4 words, but it IS amazing. Had to add: View 1 comment.

Jun 02, Hunter R. Truly is an amazing book.

Although I wish for a little more information - but I think otherwise this book would explode! It was a very nice and a thoughtful gift, from a very dear friend. I have read this book a couple times since my birthday and still skimming though it. Thank you Kasia. Jun 28, David Skies rated it liked it Shelves: Where was my picture, DK Publishing? I love DK large volume reference books.

Apr 18, Marie rated it it was amazing. Natural History: The Visual Guide to Everything on Earth presents "a unique record of the rich diversity of life on Earth. The book also highlights a number of individual specimens and species allowing the reader to get a closer look at their splendor.

This is such a fantastic book. It's large format allow for lots of gorgeous labelled photographs and tons of information on the vario Natural History: It's large format allow for lots of gorgeous labelled photographs and tons of information on the various living organisms.

It's amazing how many different specimens are represented. The introduction starts off with explanations about the Earth in general, evolution, human impact and traditional scientific classifications. The most interesting part of this section is the "tree of life", which shows how all of the living organisms are related.

After the introduction, the book splits off into 5 sections: My favourite parts into these sections are the feature profiles which examine a single species from all angles. For example, the white rhinoceros is photographed from the front, rear and side as well as in a relaxed pose showing most of his head and body. There are also close-up shots of his eye, ear, mouth, horn, hide, foot and tail.

In addition to the photographs, there's also some general information and a table with size, habitat and diet listed. While reading the book, I came across an animal that I had seen in our yard a few years ago, but didn't know what it was.

This book allowed me to finally identify it. I had mistakenly identified it as a pine marten, but after seeing a great photograph in this book, I now know it was a fisher.

I was also able to identify one of the many mushrooms we had growing in our lawn a few years ago.

It's a lawyer's wig. I remember it vividly because I had photographed it a number of times during the day as it matured and changed. The book also includes a table of contents, glossary and extensive index.

Highly recommended.

It is huge, I am always amazed when I see my 4 year old carrying it into the room She fell in love with it when she was 2years old.

See a Problem?

When I was a kid, my mom had a set of encyclopedia's I couldn't keep my hands off. This book instantly reminded me of that set, only if it came all in one book. There is everything from the animal kingdom, plant life and even stones and crystals. All that is created seems to be featured in this book. I will note, the publisher website states ages 18 and up, and I am glad for that, though I think younger teens would enjoy this book.

I just found it to be very adult in terms, so small children will When I was a kid, my mom had a set of encyclopedia's I couldn't keep my hands off. I just found it to be very adult in terms, so small children will enjoy the photos, but not understand any of the terms used. It is still one of those books you can read time and time again. And would be great for helping in Science class.NAT Description: Learn about new offers and get more deals by joining our newsletter.
