Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Animals are interesting creatures that are able to accomplish some fascinating feats. In the first chapter, there are descriptions of how five different animals communicate with their group. The second chapter is about animals using tools. The reader can find out how the chimpanzee and the finch use a tool to get their meals. The Egyptian vulture, sea otter, and capuchin monkey use a common tool with a variation in operation to break open their food source. The next two chapters cover the topics of animal jobs and memory. There is no table of contents to inform the reader of the title or topic of each chapter and the starting page. The chapter headings are noted in bold print. Also, in bold print are the names of the animals when they are first introduced. Pronunciation keys are embedded in the text and are designated in parentheses with the word, "say." There are color illustrations of the animals throughout the book. This book is part of the "All Aboard Science Reader" series, which covers other animals by utilizing high interest topics for early readers. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
