Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
San Francisco Book Review

. . . the book is chock full of good, solid scientific facts. Kids will have no idea they are learning while they are reading this fun book. The photographs throughout are crisp, clear close-ups of many amazingly beautiful animals. . . . Animals from porcupines to hamsters and birds from flamingos to peacocks populate this treasury of charming critters.

School Library Journal

K-GR 2—Kids will enjoy the photography in these titles. Tadpoles, a Level 1 volume, follows frogs from egg to tadpole to adult. The shots of hundreds of frog eggs place readers right in the water with the jellylike orbs. The text is clean, simple, and narrowly focused, making it very manageable. The final spread repeats a handful of facts. Fur, a Level 2 reader, highlights an assortment of critters with bright, appealing photos and basic but interesting information nicely organized into two-page sections. The material in Creepy-Crawlies, a Level 3 reader, is plentiful but scattershot. The cutesy term "creepy-crawlies" is used liberally throughout the book, and it's even given a definition: "What makes them creepy-crawlies? They are all very small animals!" Clearly, that explanation is as problematic as the term. All three volumes conclude with a glossary; Creepy-Crawlies also includes an index. Fur is a solid purchase and Tadpoles is not too far behind when the repetitive spread is overlooked; Creepy-Crawlies is an additional purchase.—Alyson Low, Fayetteville Public Library, AR
