Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
What may seem gross to us as humans is sometimes commonplace in nature. Some of the gross behaviors are related to defense, but most have to do with animals finding unique ways to obtain food. Some spit out a sticky liquid to entrap prey, others may bite and suck blood, while some may eat the poop or regurgitated food of others. I had no idea that the cane toad could grow to the size of a rabbit and is a danger to humans. There is also an effort to dispel fears of some of these creatures by noting that most bats eat fruits and insects and that only a few bats live on animal blood. The illustrations are graphic; and if you want to see animals in action either killing prey or eating it, then this reader will be a big hit. Overall, kids will really find an amazing amount of information in this offering that is part of the "All Aboard Science Reader" series.
