Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Each day of the week, Miss Garcia's class learns about one African animal. The children make posters to share what they have learned. The facts are on one side of the double page and the animal's skeleton is on the opposite page. By pulling on a tab, the skeleton magically becomes a drawing of the animal. Join the class as they learn about rhinos, ostriches, lions, chameleons, and zebras. How do the cells on a chameleon's body allow it to change colors? What would happen to a zebra's stripes if you shaved it? Did you know that an ostrich can outrun a lion and leopard? Bright and colorful cartoon-like illustrations wrap around the posters and dialogue bubbles give snippets of information. Clever and sturdy board construction, accompanied by amazing information will surely fascinate young children. The book belongs to the "Magic Skeleton" series. 2003, Sterling Publishing, Ages 6 to 9.
