Life-Size Farm by Teruyuki Komiya
This fourth in the “Life-Size” book series takes on farm animals in glorious full-size photographs. Just like the others in the series, there are panels that offer more detailed information, including the animals name, age, and scientific name. There are details about physical characteristics that are explained further as well as a list of facts. All of these are presented in bright colors and with a playful feel. But it is the photographs in their large size and with the clarity and detail that they offer that will have children taking this book home and lingering over it.
Several of the pages unfold to show even larger images of animals. The huge furry alpaca and the enormous cow will generate lots of interest. What is most amazing here is that the size of all of the animals is surprising and fun. Even better, the quality of the photographs is always high and offer lots of small details to pay attention to.
A great pick for library shelves, though the size is large enough to make them not fit on shelves easily! This is an excellent addition to a popular nonfiction series for children. Appropriate for ages 5-9.
