Glow-in-the-Dark Animals (Planet Reader, Level 2)

by Kris Hirschmann, Jean Cassels

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Children fascinated with fireflies will enjoy reading about all the other not-so-well-known creatures that also glow in the dark. Only animals without backbones, such as insects, jellyfish, and worms, and a few types of deep-sea fish are able to create cold light. Bioluminescence, as it is called, is used by animals in various ways, from scaring away predators to attracting prey. Some animals communicate with others of their same species in a type of light code. The color illustrations in the 32-page picture book effectively convey the glow-in-the-dark characteristics of the animals depicted. An index of key words that could be used as a vocabulary tie-in is included. 2000, Planet Reader/Troll Communications, $2.95. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer: Valerie O. Patterson
