Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Did you know that fish are divided into three distinct groups? This title is a nice basic introduction to these cold-blooded, aquatic animals. Readers learn that most fish belong to the third type of fish, the bony fish type. Fish with skeletons made of cartilage are another type of fish. Jawless fish are the third type. Each spread briefly touches on a different topic, giving a quick overview of fish of all kinds. Subjects include a fish's body, cold-blood, gills, how fish swim, fresh water, salt water, fish food, fish safety, fish eggs, bony fish, bones that bend, and jawless fish. The last two pages contain a guessing game for the reader. The text is set in large, clear type to help beginning readers; words that are part of the glossary appear in bold. Interesting facts or additional information is set in a slightly smaller typeface in a colored box to invite the reader to delve further. Well organized with a visually-interesting layout, this book contains many photographs, detailed illustrations and cutaway diagrams to support the text. The back matter contains a combined picture glossary and index. This book is part of Crabtree Publishing's "What Kind of Animal Is It?" series, which also includes Animals called Mammals, Birds of all Kinds, Frogs and other Amphibians, Many Kinds of Animals, and Reptiles of all Kinds. 2005, Crabtree, and Ages 6 to 9.
