Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Yes, animals are truly amazing and Franco points out facts and features that will stick with readers. Frogs for instance catch insects with their long and sticky tongues. The illustration of this feat is great and the flies look slippery and slimy enough to make you think that it might actually be wet. Kids will find out that flies taste with their feet, grasshoppers make music by rubbing their legs together, walruses feel with their whiskers, elephants use their trunks like hoes, ants smell with their feelers and bees communicate through a dance. The wonderful variety of sensory input is really evident in this "Rookie Reader" entry. A very good choice for libraries and kids who are ready to soak up interesting facts about the animal kingdom. The book closes with a word list (78 words) and brief info about author and illustrator. Level C. 2002, Children's Press/Scholastic,
