Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The "Pull Ahead" series provides easy reading text on informational subjects using an inviting page design and well-chosen photographs. In this entry, an astounding variety of jellyfish are pictured, enough to convince a young reader that the mushroom-capped shape with dangling tentacles is not the only form this animal takes. Jellyfish development, food sources, mobility and predators are mentioned. Occasional question-and-answer text encourages readers to predict and confirm while keeping them interested. Endmatter includes a map of the North American jellyfish habitats (everywhere), a glossary, a clear diagram of the parts of a jellyfish's body and an index-like section called "Hunt and Find." The book is a great introduction to the topic, just right for young report writers and a perfect nonfiction book for first and second grade information seekers. 2001, Lerner, $21.27 and $6.95. Ages 5 to 8. Reviewer: Susan Hepler
