Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 1-4- Designed to appeal to browsers, these volumes use a question-and-answer format to provide general overviews. Varied page layouts have an effective combination of white space and color paintings. Two acetate pages in each book allow see-through viewing for a different perspective (for example, in Ocean Life , a shell-encrusted rock on one of the acetate pages lifts to show animals that live at the bottom of a rock pool). Many spreads include a small box with a true-or-false question (answers can be found at the end of the book). Rain Forest considers only those in tropical areas. Dinosaurs shows the size of each animal compared to a human adult. These titles are worth considering as supplementary materials, but they're not essential.-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato
