Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Each book in this series attempts to explain to very young children basic facts about animal habitats, protection, coats and coverings and other information that children question. This one begins by posing the title question that is answered on the next page and the question answer format continues naming a host of animals and their habitats. Children learn that musk ox live on the tundra and have sharp hooves for digging in the ice, sloths hang from trees and can move fast to escape an enemy, and that marhors are an endangered wild goat prized for their curling horns. Digitally rendered illustrations in bright primary colors are garish and unattractive. Without line and shading to add depth and contour they are flat and unappealing. The information is basic and presented in a lively fashion sufficient for the very youngest to grasp and find interesting. Visually this is marginal at best and one knows that in the hands of a James Arnosky or a Margery Facklam it could have been so much better. Bibliography, index, glossary are included. 2004, Picture Window Books, Ages 4 to 7.
—Beverley Fahey
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-These books provide information about animals in a question/answer format. Each silly query is followed by a short response. In the first volume, the title question is matched with a brightly colored illustration of a duck wearing sunglasses and standing in the desert. A turn of the page reveals that "No! Ducks live in wetlands" and provides a few more sentences about their behavior in this habitat. A smiling bird is shown skimming across blue water. The pattern is repeated for musk oxen, sloths, water striders, and other creatures, finally ending with a camel and a "Yes!" The same arrangement is used in the second book, in which frogs are featured ("Do frogs have hair?" or "Do frogs have fleece?"). The book ends with "Do frogs have slimy skin?" with an affirmative answer. The heavily outlined, digitally rendered cartoons in bright colors add to the humor of the texts. These titles could be used for a fun group reading but will not fill a need for scientific materials.-Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
