Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
The swan is a fairly large bird that flies and swims. Enjoy the many full page color photographs of this long neck bird. Readers will find general information about the habitat and diet of the swan along with the physical descriptions and characteristics of this bird. Included in the text is a summary of a folktale or pourquoi tale about why some swans are black. Young readers may require some assistance with the informational text features such as the captions, bold print words, and word definitions. Book titles are provided for additional reading about the swan. Some children may enjoy exploring the two websites listed; there is a brief description as to what activities may be expected at the site. This book is one of four in the "Amazing Animals" series that introduces different animals to children. The format and presentation in each book is similar and the photographs equally spectacular.

From the Publisher
.the "Amazing Animals" series will attract both beginning and struggling readers. The large, beautiful photos on each spread include vivid shots of animals in action as well as close-ups of their faces. Photo captions consistently add interesting animal facts, and occasional vocabulary words are defined at the bottom of the pages, adding to the clean, appealing layout. In addition to the engaging photos, the text is laid out in a large, easy-to-read font. The text, although made up of simple sentences, conveys plenty of interesting information.
