Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 1-These easy-to-read titles are designed to support National Life Science standards. However, the weak texts are disappointing. Each fact-bite could be considered correct, but many of the broad general statements are vague or possibly misleading. For example, readers are told that "Kangaroos are large mammals that hop fast." In Camels, deserts are described as "dry areas with few plants." There is a similarly disappointing sentence about the habitat of ostriches. The photography, taken from various archives, is generally useful; a charming close-up of a camel's face clearly shows how their long eyelashes "keep sand out of their eyes." Overall, though, while these titles could provide reading-skill practice, the texts are inadequate to support children's scientific exploration. The glossaries are incomplete, the further reading is extremely limited, and the single recommended Web site requires a special code.-Nancy Call, Santa Cruz Public Libraries, Aptos, CA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
