Review:
Zoobooks is an everything-you-always-wanted-to-know about animals, reptiles, birds, and insects magazine. Each issue focuses on one topic, which is cleanly designed much like a book. The coverage is thorough, with 20 full-color pages of photos and illustrations showing on the creature in its natural setting, details of bone structure and muscles, maps, and descriptions of different breeds or characteristics. The text is readable, and the photographs, relevant charts, and drawings are compelling. A four-page pullout section with puzzles, number games, and make-it-yourself activities adds another dimension to both the learning and the fun.
