Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
It's easy to become engrossed in this fact-filled, user friendly, thirty-two-page book from the "Animals of the Snow and Ice" series. Written for middle grade students, its crisp photos could easily entertain younger students as well. Photos show how seals hide in ice piles, swim in aqua waters, and bask in the sun. An excellent format places six "Words to Know" right up front so readers will be sure to see them before diving into the other text. Information covers how seals get around, what they eat, how they are adapted for sea and snow and ice, as well as a message about what's being done in the world to save the seals. Each two page spread contains a few paragraphs packed with facts and written in short sentences that are easy to comprehend. Fun facts at the end leave readers with food for thought and information they can share with others. Books and websites with more information are listed. Other books in the series cover Polar Bears, Emperor Penguins, and Snowy Owls. They are all well written by an author with over 200 books to her credit. Add this book to classrooms as a stand-alone book or as a supplement to science and geography units. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
