Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2Above-average introductory nonfiction. Each title covers habitat, babies and the early development of the young, food, and protection against danger. With only two or three sentences per page, the clearly written texts are simple enough for early independent readers and just right for reading aloud to preschoolers. Bold type alerts children to the well-chosen glossary words. Concluding fact pages offer additional bits of information. Dramatic, full-color photographs embellish each page. Crocodiles grabs readers' attention with photos of these animals lunging at wildebeests, opening their mouths and displaying their teeth, and a baby croc swimming into the gaping jaws of a Nile perch. Penguins spotlights the emperor, the largest of the species. Lynn M. Stone's Penguins (Rourke, 1989) and Michael George's Alligators and Crocodiles (Child's World, 1991) have similarly gorgeous photographic appeal but more text. Two solid choices.Jacqueline Elsner, Athens Regional Library, GA
