Children's Literature - Children's Literature
This "Rookie Read-About Science" book introduces the concept of limbs in the animal kingdom for the youngest reader. Have you ever pondered the fact that you have four limbs? Interesting facts about limbs include--giraffes have the longest legs of any animal, lobsters and crabs have ten limbs, and a little fish called the mudskipper uses its front limbs, which are fins, to walk on land and climb trees! Bright clear photographs complement this look at extremities, which informs early readers without condescension. Budding researchers will like the thorough index. 1999, Grolier Publishing Co./Children's Press, Ages 4 to 8, $19.00 and $4.95. Reviewer: Martha Shaw
