Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Animals in this nonfiction text are compared as to which one lives or travels at the highest elevation. As the author introduces a new animal, a numbered line on the right-hand side of the page shows the higher level compared to the previous animal's elevation. It starts out with the acorn woodpecker tapping into trees at 25 feet and continues with such animals as the howler monkey, snow leopard, bar-headed goose and many more. Each page includes not only the height at which they travel but where they are located; for example, the alpine grasshopper feeds in the meadows in the Rocky Mountains. Included at the back of the book is a list of the animals with some facts about each one and a glossary for the more technical terms. Jensen's detailed pastel drawings of each animal make it easier for children to identify the creatures. 2005, Picture Window Books, Ages 5 to 9.
