Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-These spare introductions profile three small predators in two-page sections. Each title briefly describes the subject animal's basic anatomy and outstanding physical and behavioral characteristics. Snakes also describes the distinctive characteristics of two North American species. Color photos accompany the texts on every spread. Some close-ups lack detail. Of the three books, Bats is the most lucid; the others are marred by contradictory statements and inaccuracies, respectively. For example, Snakes describes the reptiles' eyes as small in one section but large in another, and Spiders states, "Many insects are arthropods, including the class called arachnids," erroneously implying that some insects are not arthropods, and that arachnids belong to the same class as insects. Bats, with its specific information on this rare species, will be a useful additional title as most general introductions only mention these bats in relation to their small size. Snakes will be useful as well where there is a heavy demand for material on poisonous snakes. Margery Facklam's Spiders and Their Web Sites (Little, Brown, 2001) is a better choice for material on daddy longlegs than the Wheeler title.-Karey Wehner, formerly at San Francisco Public Library Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
