Children's Literature - Rachel Miller
Animals and their habitats and homes are explained in this book. Bobbie Kalman describes their homes in language that is familiar to children. This nonfiction book starts by asking readers to think about their homes and what they need in order to have a comfortable home. It slowly progresses into explaining grasslands, forests and deserts as habitats. The author explains that within each habitat there are hiding places, shelters, dens, holes, nests in trees, and nests in other places, including in the ground. She uses animals that are sure to be familiar to young readers. The photographs are clear and purposefully chosen for their connection to the words. They are extremely captivating and detailed. In many cases, more than one photograph appears on a page to help the reader understand the idea being portrayed. There are also beautiful illustrations to go with the concepts being explained. The last page is an index of key words that are highlighted throughout the text. In addition to the words there are illustrations to remind the reader what the concepts mean. This nonfiction text is a part of the "Introducing Living Things" series. Reviewer: Rachel Miller
