Gr 2-4-These books have great visual impact. For example, How Do Animals Find Food?, the less-dramatic title, has eye-catching close-ups of a praying mantis crunching a bee and of birds of prey and their kill. The one-page topics include "Crabby hunters and scavengers" and "It's all in the beak!" Informative captions also add details to the colorful illustrations as readers learn how spiders "liquefy" the insides of their prey and see a snake swallow a meal whole with jaws unhinged. Camouflage and Mimicry has up-close and eye-to-eye photos of a "shade shifting" gecko and "two toned" fish and birds. Short bits of information highlight the many species that blend in and stand out with colors as well as those with sophisticated adaptations that make them look like everything from seaweed to bird droppings. Good collection updates.-Melanie S. Wible, Kanoheda Elementary, Lawrenceville, GA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
