Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-These sketchy introductions will disappoint students and browsers alike. While the spare texts are clearly written, the coverage is superficial and much important information has been omitted. The animals' natural habitats are not discussed, and little is said about their diets. Explanations of reproduction are essentially limited to egg laying. Few scientific terms are employed. In Mollusks, the text states that land slugs ``...taste bad so other animals do not try to eat them''; however, other sources list a number of animals that prey upon them. Most of the illustrations are good-quality, full-page, full-color photographs; unfortunately, the animals depicted are not identified. Small, colorful drawings occasionally appear underneath the text; only a few of them are labeled. Robert Snedden's What Is a Fish? (Sierra, 1993) and Jennifer Coldry's Discovering Slugs and Snails (Bookwright, 1987; o.p.) are more thorough and better-illustrated titles for slightly older audiences.-Karey Wehner, San Francisco Public Library
