Brilliant Book. I have read many ABC book to the kids over the years and this by far is the very best of them. There is alliteration - love it, and it good alliteration too. There are all kinds of animals, instruments, food and miscellany on the page that starts with the letter. Sometimes you have to think how it's being used. This was a joy. It was the smallest details that were so enjoyable. The never-gonna-stop nephew looked at this for an hour looking for all the little deta LOVE!
The never-gonna-stop nephew looked at this for an hour looking for all the little details. Both kids read this with joy. They both gave it 5 stars and they want to keep the book.
I have to make sure the nephew doesn't hide it in his room so I can't return it to the library. Why, oh why did I never know of Graeme Base growing up. He is brilliant. I have so many favorite things from this. I love what he did with 'X'. I love the baboon playing the bassoon. Dalick's from Dr. Who show up in the 'Ds'.
I like the Green Gorilla wearing gloves. There is a fairy. I love Kitty Koala and the 'K' page in general. I love the outrageous Ostrich. This book gave me joy. View all 4 comments. Feb 11, mark monday rated it it was amazing Shelves: alpha-team , kidworld. I love this book so much!
I practically lived in it when I was kid. View all 25 comments. Apr 12, Ted rated it it was amazing. Each letter of the alphabet gets either a full page, or a two-page spread of beautiful color art depicting numerous animals and items which start with the given letter.
Perfect for an oldie and a youngster going through together Rabid Reviewer Raves Raucously Re Regal Rudiments for Reading Okay, parents and grandparents and those who have no progeny , this is the GREATEST graphical alphabet book for youngsters, young readers, old fogies, and any other group of English-language readers whatsoever.
Perfect for an oldie and a youngster going through together, looking at each item in the picture and figuring out if they can what word the wonderful Graeme Base had in mind. Over 3 million copies of the book have been sold. In a 25th Anniversary edition was published. Example of a two-page spread.
Man, if only this book could have time-traveled back to my young reading days. View all 8 comments. I found a copy for a friend's grandchild. I blush to say I didn't find all the little Graemes. A beautiful body of work that took Base three years to complete. It can't be a spoiler to show one ok two! Just gorgeous. I used to own as well. While I didn't enjoy that book quite as much I'm sad that it I found a copy for a friend's grandchild. While I didn't enjoy that book quite as much I'm sad that it appears to be missing.
Hopefully a copy will turn up at my work. Apr 12, Manybooks rated it it was ok Shelves: alphabet-counting-books , childrens-literature , picture-books , book-reviews. Although I do quite enjoy Graeme Base's Animalia as a general concept, the intricate and involved illustrations do seem incredibly over busy and much too in-one's-face for them to ever be even remotely considered personal favourites as I tend to rather crave and even require visual simplicity and unclutteredness, and sadly, upon rereading Animalia , the over-busyness actually started to give me a bit of a sick headache.
And really, the sheer amount of objects playing hide and seek within the il Although I do quite enjoy Graeme Base's Animalia as a general concept, the intricate and involved illustrations do seem incredibly over busy and much too in-one's-face for them to ever be even remotely considered personal favourites as I tend to rather crave and even require visual simplicity and unclutteredness, and sadly, upon rereading Animalia , the over-busyness actually started to give me a bit of a sick headache.
And really, the sheer amount of objects playing hide and seek within the illustrations is rather majorly daunting to say the least, especially since one is not even sure exactly how many hidden images there are in each section, in each given picture spread which is why I most certainly would really have appreciated and actually required a list of hidden objects included, either at the back of the book, with corresponding page numbers, or preferably, underneath each of the illustrations.
Now I do believe and even realise that Animalia has a lot of what I would label "kid appeal" but for someone like me, with less than stellar eyesight, the sheer masses of hidden objects can easily prove to be a bit massively overwhelming at best.
But that being said and even though I have only rated Animalia with a high two star ranking , aside from the book teaching and practicing the alphabet, alliteration, rhyming and the like, the hidden images might also be a useful tool for working on pattern recognition with children as well as adults who have focusing and visual tracking issues the latter factoid being yet another reason why a list of the specific hidden objects to be located in Animalia would have been a welcome and much useful addition.

What I love is that the phrases for each letter are very involved, lots of great words here, no "dumbing-down" for kiddies. Also, while I at first thought there was just a random collection of "misc. For example: Unicorns for "U" is the main focus, but then if you look carefully you can also see umbrellas and Union Jacks in the picture.
Ne A splendid ABC book! Kids will love that. I didn't give the book five stars because, alas, I'm not really a fan of his illustration style--this is just personal taste and I think this is a great alphabet book!
Within the pages of this book You may discover, if you look Beyond the spell of written words, A hidden land of beasts and birds. For many things are 'of a kind,' And those with keenest eyes will find A thousand things, or maybe more - It's up to you to keep the score. Visit Animalia on Facebook. Graeme Base.
