Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Ants as the main course and spiders for dessert are on the menu for this reptile, the horned lizard. Some people know it as the horny toad. Read about the creature that has pointy scales on its body. The general information includes a brief description of the horned lizard's physical appearance, habitat, and diet. Learn about its survival techniques. The layout of the book is kept simple with the text on the left and fullpage, color photographs on the right. There is a world map to show where horned lizards live and a diagram to illustrate the life cycle. Readers will find a glossary and index in the back. Most of the words in the glossary appear in the index. Some children may benefit from a brief introduction about the informational text features along with assistance on different sentence structures and content vocabulary. Additional resources include other books and the FactHound website where the book's ISBN number can be entered for websites about the horned lizard. For those readers who enjoy reading about the horned lizard, there are other titles in the "Reptiles" set. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3–The reptiles in this series, some of which are kept as pets, are explored and photographed in their natural, exotic habitats. The books provide rudimentary introductions to the creatures through spreads that feature one or two simply written sentences opposite a full-page photograph. Geckos, for instance, describes the lizards as making a “squeaky noise” and having “sticky toes.” Gila Monsters informs readers that the creature’s bite is poisonous and that it can have a 20-year lifespan. Each title includes a range map. Some graphic photos are included, such as one in Chameleons that shows the creature swallowing another lizard, and another in Horned Lizards that depicts the animal after it has shot blood from its eyes as a defense. Though the photographs are well reproduced, the titles have a muted appearance and an old-fashioned layout. Extras in each book include a “Life Cycle” illustration and a recommendation to use the publisher’s Fact Hound Web site, which offers related Internet resources. Readers may be drawn to this series to learn more about uncommon reptiles, but the books lack visual appeal.
