Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-4-These titles pair excellent-quality, never-before-published photos with simple texts. Brief entries begin with descriptions of the author and photographer's travels to the Australian and Central American locales. The couple's journey Down Under is not particularly interesting, but the scientific information about koalas is. Their trip to Panama's rainforests could be a story on its own; they paddled over small rivers in a dug-out canoe, hiked through muddy expanses, and then climbed the mangrove trees to find their subject, baby sloths. In both titles, Lang focuses on the animals' daily lives, habitat, diet, and, in particular, their relationship to their mothers, which is charmingly portrayed in text and photograph. "Did You Know?" sections provide even more informational bits. Appealing and useful additions.-Nancy Call, Santa Cruz Public Libraries, Aptos, CA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
