Hello! My name’s Maggie, and you might be…? 😀 On Chickadee Lover Maggie, I write posts. Lots of them. On many subjects you can think of. Let the madness ensue.
Today I’m reviewing books! If you like reading, you’re in for a treat!

Title: The Encyclopedia of Animals
Editor: Tim Harris
Genre: Nonfiction animals
Publication Year: 2018
Overview: Hundreds of animals are introduced and described alongside colorful illustrations and photographs.
“This one looks good!” When I was a preteen, I LOVED researching animals and compiling facts about them. My main interests were mammals and birds. 🙂 I got this book from Amazon to flip through with my little sisters! I also thought it would be fun to read about some of my favorite animals again.
things I liked:
- the illustrations and photographs
- the quality of the book
- the navigation
things I didn’t like:
- evolution, evolution everywhere
- various animals being MIA
- not many cool facts
Yeah, I was disappointed in this book. It’s a great book to flip through with kids, though! I’m glad I got it for that. For personal reading, I wouldn’t read it haha
The author could not stop talking about evolution. Like, please. I’m here to read about animals – where they live, what they eat, cool traits they have. When he said that mammals came from birds but actually mammals came first, I was like YOU LOST ME BRO
If you get this book to read with kids, 8/10 stars! If you’re going to read it yourself, 4/10 stars! I’ve read better.
Hah, thanks for reading!
