Overview

Animal Fact File is a visual guide to the most important—and most interesting—anatomical characteristics of the world's most irresistible animals. Finely detailed color illustrations within a simple, easytouse format highlight their unique physiology with multiple views of each animal's body. Students have the opportunity to examine such special features as a dolphin's blowhole, an otter's webbed foot, a hippo's ear, or a gorilla's footprint—at a glance.

An open and inviting presentation
Generous twopage spreads show each mammal's physiology right down to the bone, with Xray views of their skeletons and skull structure. Sidebyside comparisons pinpoint characteristics that distinguish each mammal as well as its size in relation to humans.

• Aardvarks

Editorial Reviews

Nature Canada
Provides juvenile readers with an excellent overview of the animal kingdom...an easy-to-use and thorough reference source...its enticing format and interesting facts make it fascinating reading for all ages.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-A mix of fascinating information and surprising omissions and contradictions. The clear and sensible format presents an alphabetical guide to mammals from aardvarks to wombats. The full-color illustrations are excellent. Pictures show external and internal views of the animals as a whole and highlight distinctive body parts. Interesting comparison drawings abound; for example, the dromedary nose is compared to that of a bactrian camel. And there is, for every entry, an easy reference chart giving the mammal's classification, size, coloration, and features. Here is where the confusion starts. On page one, the author discusses the orders of mammals and presents a chart that lists the scientific names of typical species. On this page, the elephant is listed as a Macroscelidea and a Proboscidea. On the elephant page, neither of these classifications appears. Its genus is given as Loxodonta and its species is africana. Then, on the last page, another chart shows the elephant as a member of the Proboscidea genus. There is no explanation of what the scientific name is as compared to the genus and species. To add to the confusion, occasionally two animals appear on the same page. For instance, on the aardvark page, the hyrax is featured as well. But there's no chart about the hyrax, no explanation of how it is related to the aardvark (if, indeed, it is), and there is no hyrax entry in the book. Despite these shortcomings, the book provides a lot of easily accessed information in digestible bits.-Randi Hacker, Montgomery Elementary School, VT Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
