Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cheryl Williams Chang
There are various ways animals and insects clean themselves, some of which are very interesting. Not all ways are expected or traditional. For example, there is a type of caterpillar covered in wax, which keeps it clean and thwarts parasites. In order to clean itself, a whale jumps out of the water and slams its back or belly onto the waves. By doing this, it knocks off attached barnacles and lice. Some animals roll in the dirt and others wait for a rainstorm as a method of cleaning. This book offers a table of contents and a glossary. The photos are clear, large, and bold. Each page asks two questions and offers two answers. The pages are created with two readers in mind. The top question and answer appear to be for a younger readership, perhaps first grade. The second question and answer, located on the same page, appear to be created for a second or third grader. This book could reach a broad age range of readers, depending on whether or not there is someone to assist the young reader. Science, health, and potentially social studies classes (relationships of animals compared to people) will benefit from this interesting, fun read. Reviewer: Cheryl Williams Chang
