Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The table of contents indicates that there is a lot of information in this book. Young readers learn about various animals that hatch from eggs and that some of these animals are completely on their own once they have hatched. Other animals are born and these animals are fed milk from their mothers' bodies. As they grow up they learn to eat a variety of foods. Most mammals care for their young and there is a picture of the life cycle of these animals. Those that stay with one or more parents are usually taught how to forage for food, where to live, how to avoid predators and more. Many mammal babies look like smaller versions of the adult parents. Others like reptiles, birds and mammals such as foxes might have different color skins or fur which changes as they age. The most dramatic change is that of a butterfly which starts as an egg, becomes a caterpillar and eventually a beautiful winged creature. The various stages are clearly depicted with photographs. Newts and dragonflies also go through a similar metamorphosis. The closing pages contain a picture glossary an index and plenty of information for adults including the objectives in reading, activities prior to reading, follow-up questions and a variety of activities and ways to extend the information presented. There is even a teachers' guide at Part of the "My World" series, this is a Guided Reading Level "H" title. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
