Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ramirose I. Attebury
This book in the "Los extremos y los animales/Animal Extremes" series spotlights those animals that can survive in some of the world's hottest temperatures. Some species have developed special techniques for staying alive in temperatures between 80 and 176 degrees Fahrenheit. Animals featured include monarch butterflies, red-spotted toads, fennec foxes, burrowing owls, antelope jackrabbits, long-tailed pocket mice, Bactrian camels, and Pompeii worms. Burrowing, hiding in tubes, sitting in shade, being nocturnal and hiding beneath rocks protects these hardy creatures from soaring temperatures. Along with simple yet effective illustrations showing the animals, a thermometer depicted on each page displays the temperatures as they climb. One unanswered question that many young readers will undoubtedly ask is what happens if temperatures climb higher than the animal can handle. Still, the book is filled with enough interesting facts, both in the bilingual text and in a fun facts section at the end, that readers will undoubtedly be entertained and educated with this selection.
