The most stylish children’s book of 2022 award goes to: Wild Animals of the World.

Wild Animals of the World by Dieter Braun is the book that gave me FOMO as I saw it appear all over kidsbookstagram last year. And then I spotted the capercaillie - a brilliant Scottish bird - inside and I knew I had to have it!

Creating a book which captures the wonder and beauty of the natural world is, without a doubt, a true feat. But this incredible non-fiction brings to life the power, colour and strength of the creatures we share our planet with. Shining a spotlight on feathered, furry and scaled inhabitants from all over the globe, this is a stunning collection of fauna that walk, swim and fly around our planet. Bold colours, crisp lines and a graphic style truly dazzle.

Scattered throughout with short paragraphs of fascinating facts, this book is less for reading and more for absorbing. As a kid I would have opened it on a daily basis to just pore of the graphic illustrations and ‘collect’ them in my memory. My bairns also love doing this. It makes it a perfect book for toddlers through to teenagers because you will never get too old for looking at the amazing animal artwork.

Spanning all the continents, each section of the book focuses on half a dozen animals from each location which when you think about it is a real drop in the ocean of animal life on the Earth leaving readers mystified at the wonder of the world we live on.

And so it’s both equally a fascinating read as well as meditative. Capturing the imagination and making you contemplate the importance and beauty of these amazing wild animals. Reminding us that we should not assume that we are the more important creature on Earth. That we cannot and should not imagine a world without these amazing animals. That although humankind could exist without tigers, elephants and lynx, we should not want to. Ultimately the conservation message in this book is simply to show us what we should already know: the wild animals of the world are worthy.

Thanks to @flyingeyebooks for this wildly fascinating story! 

Happy reading and mouth-gaping whilst reading this beauty!

  1. “Toddlers to teenagers” - I think you can stretch that to include Grandpas. This looks fabulous!
