Like virtually all of the DK books I have seen, this one is exceptionally well done. We are using it for gr. 3 homeschool biology. It covers each of the animal groups (mammals, reptiles and so on) quite thorough and is very engaging. The pictures are bright and fun and the text is in small, easily digestible chunks. I think the amount of information is just right for my daughter, though I can see that younger kids would probably find it quite fun as well. I'd imagine kids older than gr. 5 or so would like it too, though they might be looking for more detailed information.
