Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara Youngblood and Marilyn Courtot
Adapted from Animals in Motion (2000), this book offers information about a variety of animals and how they move from place to place. As each animal is described, the reader is informed as to what attributes he/she would need to be like that animal. The shape of an animal's body and the type of feet are some of the clues relating to how they might move. A beaver has flaps between its toes, which help it swim. Feathered wings help birds fly, and bats, which are mammals, have wings made of skin. Other animals like the cheetah are built for speed with extra long legs and strong back leg muscles. The variety will fascinate young readers and give them plenty to talk about as well as answering questions that they may already have. The illustrations are realistic and clearly show body parts to help with understanding the text. There are several interesting facts including the distance a springtail insect can jump compared to its body size. In general, the reader gains an appreciation for wildlife and the way they cope with their environment. A Level 3 book in the " Kids Can Read" series.
