Just love those NBT (National Book Trust of India) and CBT (Children Book Trust) publications. Many of the children books have been prepared by eminent artists and each in a different manner. The emphasis has been given more to the pictorial part to educate the children in a true manner. However, most of these books are of pre-discovery channel era when many of the children were not knowing most wild animals.
Have a look upon this book 'Animal World' by Aurobindo Kundu. It's in 2 color printing with lovely prints of various animals, 12 to be specific.
The animals have been introduced in a single line with rhyming word. e.g.: The mighty LION Lord of the jungle, And the fleet-footed DEER Hears him rumble.
