Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Often when something is looked at from a different angle, close up or without seeing the whole, it is not recognizable. In this book, kids are encouraged to look at what is briefly described and then to look again by turning the page. This book opens with a close up view of a duck's foot, turning the page reveals more information about the creature and its foot. Interesting facts about caterpillars, geckos, flickers and black bears and how they move from place to place make up the contents. Toward the end of the book, kids are once again presented with the images and asked to identify the animal--answers appear on the next page. There is a glossary, a page devoted to activities, an index, and list of additional books, videos and web sites (there are no publication dates given for the books and most of them are from the publisher--Gareth Stevens). Part of the "A Springboards into Science" series. 2000, Gareth Stevens, Ages 4 to 6, $19.93. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
From The Critics
Here's an excellent way to introduce little ones to the natural world! Look at a detailed close-up photograph of an animal's foot and read the clue provided. Who does it belong to? Turn the page to discover who the foot belongs to and how this foot is specially adapted to the animal's lifestyle! Included are related activity suggestions and a glossary. Part of the "Springboards into Science" series. 2000, Gareth Stevens Publishing, $14.95. Ages 5 to 10. Reviewer: S. Kleven SOURCE: Parent Council Volume 8
