REVIEW: Animalium by Katie Scott and Jenny Broom

Welcome to the Museum that's open whenever you want



The museum that thinks it's a book

Animalium is one of those rare beasts – a book for children that actually changes the way they look at their world. The conceit is simple:  this is a museum and kids can actually tour the pages, wandering through different galleries and poring over the eye-opening full colour illustrations. It's an indulgence and an education, all at the same time, reassuringly timeless. It's also the sort of book that parents can dip into with their kids, so that eventually, the museum becomes a familiar and reassuring place to explore and experience, a place of wonder where there will always be new creatures to discover together. With the advent of the internet, the old bound concept of an encyclopedia may be dead, but this book proves that this museum of natural history is very much alive.  Big PIcture Press, age: 6+
