School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Coyote at Pinon Place captures a moment in the life of a young coyote living in the pinon forest on the edge of civilization. Coyote wakes and begins his never-ending hunt for food. His quest is told with humor and warmth. He wanders into a backyard, where he drinks from a small plastic pool. He leaps at a group of jays who scatter wildly, eats a few insects, encounters a deadly rattler and, finally, makes a meal of a small wood rat. Deborah Dennard's fictionalized account of coyote's adventure is rich in natural detail, and the artwork by John Paul Genzo is vibrant. Young readers will learn about coyote habits and diet, while they wonder whether the young coyote will ever find dinner. Well-narrated, the read-along audiocassette with page-turn signals perfectly captures the evening ramble with sounds of nature and coyote "yips, yaps and howls."-Emily Herman, Emma Hutchinson Elementary School, Atlanta, GA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
