Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-3-In each of these sleekly formatted easy readers, a boxed text overlaid on color photo spreads outlines the chief physical and behavioral characteristics of the featured animal as well as distinctive characteristics of particular species. Ants and Snakes also mention natural enemies and defense mechanisms and include simple anatomical diagrams of representative animals. The best feature of all three titles is the photography. The enlargements of ants and bees, in particular, are so sharply focused that hairs on body parts, grains of pollen, etc., are plainly visible. Although the texts are clearly written, the first two books are flawed to some degree by oversimplification and the third by a factual error. For instance, Ants implies that the change from larva to pupa is immediate; Bees omits a description of the insects' metamorphosis. Snakes has a glaring error in the statement that "All snakes lay eggs." Other titles offer more detailed information, albeit without the excellent photography. Ting Morris's Ant (Smart Apple Media, 2004) and Joyce Milton's Honeybees (Grosset & Dunlap, 2003)-aimed at a slightly higher reading level-both do a better job of describing insect metamorphosis. Dorothy Hinshaw Patent's Slinky, Scaly, Slithery Snakes (Walker, 2000) gives a more accurate description of snake reproduction.-Karey Wehner, formerly at San Francisco Public Library Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
