Editorial Reviews

Criticas
PreS-Gr 2-Each volume in this beginner animal series presents basic information in simple language on appealing two-page spreads illustrated by line drawings on one side and a closeup photo of a single animal on the other. Two pages of questions at the end of each book add to its value for primary school collections. Also recommended for public libraries and bookstores. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
In this colorful, nonfiction book, a part of the "Descubre los animales" series, readers can learn about nine different animal species that live under the water. Each section contains one full-page photograph, several smaller illustrations and three to four short paragraphs detailing unique characteristics of the animal in question. Young readers will learn that although whales and dolphins live under water, they must still come to the surface to breathe air like other mammals, and although starfish and sea anemones might look like non-moving plants, they are actually animals, just of the very slow variety. Even older readers might be interested to learn how octopi move--by breathing water, then shooting it out in streams through holes in their heads. Other animals included in the book are crabs, strange fish, seahorses and sea turtles. Although children will enjoy reading or hearing the book for fun, teachers may also find it useful and take advantage of the review questions located on the last pages of the book. 2001, Two-Can Publishing, $9.95 and $5.95. Ages 3 to 7. Reviewer: Ramirose Attebury
