Day and night, forests and meadows are buzzing with wildlife. Animals use the trees and grasses to build their homes and to find food.
In the Mountains
The lower slopes of mountains are often covered in forests. Higher up, it is windy and cold, but some animals still call it home.
Rivers and Streams
Many animals live on or close by rushing rivers and bubbling streams. they have to learn to go with the flow – or they’ll be washed away!
Boiling days and freezing nights, winds whipping up sandstorms and little food or water. You have to be tough to love in the desert.

Some creatures live in unbelievably cold places. Arctic animals live around the North Pole. Although there is no land there, the ice is home to many creatures.
Beneath the Waves
The ocean is home to many animals, from giant whales to sea creatures so tiny you need a microscope to see them.

Boo Roo and Tigger Too’s thoughts…
Roo is a naturally inquisitive child so have a book full of fabulous facts about animals is right up her street. As she was sitting reading through it for the first time I could see her pull some puzzling faces, when I asked her what was wrong she replied ‘Mummy, did you know that foxes use poo and wee to mark their territory!…. Disgusting!’
Whilst the book is aimed at school age children this didn’t stop Tigger getting involved in the action. The thick pages are perfect for him to turn without fear of ripping and spotting all the animals was great fun too.
With a RRP of £5.99 I think that this is great value considering the amount of information included within the book, I’m actually thinking of buying a couple to give as birthday presents when Roo attends her friends parties.
