This activity book invites youngsters five years of age and older to engage in some hands-on learning by using the 150 color stickers included to create their own illustrated animal atlas.

You'll find 15 large, double page illustrated maps on which to place the animal stickers. For example, the map of Canada and Alaska offers silhouettes of a snowy owl, moose, bald eagle, narwhal and Tundra Swan. All the child must do is find the page with the appropriate stickers and affix them to the proper spot.

Each section also has a box featuring a fact about one of the creatures from that country or region. For example, you'll learn why older rattlesnakes make more noise than smaller ones and how grey squirrels found their way to North America.

Once the stickers are all in place, the child, with some adult help, can begin learning the names of all the birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, insects and fish found in different parts of the world. Try playing the 'Where is ...' game with your child. Ask him or her to point to a horse, armadillo or bird on the map.

A cautionary note: Since these stickers are fairly small, make sure to keep this book away from any child who might be tempted to place them in his or her mouth rather than where they belong on the pages of the atlas.
