Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
This book celebrates the incredible diversity of the animal kingdom. All fish live in some type of water and most amphibians do too. Many mammals, birds, reptiles, and insects live in or near a body of water at least part of the time. Discover why some animals like fish must live in the water, while others are able to live both in water and on land. A glossary and an index are included, along with nice illustrations. Part of the "Animals Up Close" series. 2000, Gareth Stevens Publishing, $15.95. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: S. Kleven SOURCE: Parent Council Volume 8
Children's Literature
An incredible variety of amazing animals live in or near water, from freshwater mammals to saltwater fish, giant whales to microscopic plankton, seabirds to land birds, spiders to snakes. Children learn why some animals are able to live both in water and on land while others must live in water, and still others live at the water's edge. They will discover how freshwater springs become little streams that grow into rivers and eventually meet the sea. They will also learn about the process called the food chain, as well as about Antarctic animals. The beautiful, full-color illustrations are stunningly realistic and the majority of them are shown in an impressive full-page or double-page size. The end of the book provides a glossary, a list of subject related books, videos and web sites, as well as an index. This is a wonderful book about the animal kingdom that will be thoroughly enjoyed and treasured by young and old alike. It is part of the series "Animals Up Close." 2000 (orig. 1997), Gareth Stevens, $21.27. Ages 7 up. Reviewer: Ute Krappen-Clancy
