Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
There are over 50 kinds of animals known as kangaroos. They range in size and shape from the largest and most well known, the red kangaroo, to a potoroo, about the size of a rat. Readers will glean information about a few of them: their size, diet, geographic location, and interactions with humans. Some of the color photos provide fascinating glimpses into these animals, such as the one showing the male kangaroos balancing on their tails and kicking out with both hind feet, or the picture of the red kangaroo flopping in a hole to take a nap. Some of the photos intended for identification could have used more background to give the reader a sense of the animal's size. The chapter on reproduction includes close-up photos of the development of the joey inside the pouch. Part of the "Carolrhoda Nature Watch Books," the text is well organized and clear. Students using this for reports will also find the glossary and index useful. Animal lovers will enjoy learning about the variety and traits of these peculiar creatures. 2000, Carolrhoda Books, Ages 8 to 12, $22.60. Reviewer: Sharon Salluzzo
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-- The kangaroo and echidna are spotlighted in two books from Australia. In the first, the focus is on the familiar red and gray kangaroos, as text and full-color photographs highlight physical characteristics, behaviors, and natural habitats. Wallaroos, wallabies, and tree kangaroos are also included. Photographs show the marsupial in the wild and close-ups of a joey during developmental stages from birth to maturity. Unfortunately, less familiar members of the species are presented before the discussion of common characteristics of all kangaroos. Juxtaposition of text and photographs on the first several pages sometimes confuse as information is positioned more as captions in lengthy paragraph form. The Australian Echidna , a relative of the platypus, is documented in photo-essay style. It is much better organized, with text and photographs successfully coordinated to present a clear understanding of this scientifically ``confusing'' animal. Captioned photographs depict the animal's unique physical characteristics and ability to adapt to a variety of habitats in Australia and Tasmania. A fascinating series of pictures shows a young spineless echidna as it struggles to find its mother within a dark burrow. A detailed comparison of reproduction in this egg-laying monotreme with that of other mammals is presented in direct text, illustration, and photographs. --Diane Nunn, Richard E. Byrd Elementary School, Glen Rock, NJ
From The Critics
This book describes the kangaroo, from its historical locations to family associations. What makes a kangaroo distinct? What is a kangaroo, large or small? How does a kangaroo live, and what is its family life like? The book answers such questions superbly and concisely. Excellent photos support the text and vice versa. Designed for young students who want details about the whole life of kangaroos, the book examines specialized features associated with kangaroos through the use of photos and text. In particular, it shows the kangaroo's feet, pouches, and method of bearing young. The unique and special features of kangaroos' family life and social interactions are portrayed very effectively. The book takes a young reader through the life of a kangaroo, from courtship, through tough times in life, to socialization. A glossary lists specialized words, and an index is helpful. The book reviews all aspects of the kangaroo: its past in aboriginal art; its present, in which the animal's survival is affected by humans; and its future, wherein the animal is likely to be managed by governments. (a Carolrhoda Nature Watch Book.) Highly Recommended, Grades 5-12. REVIEWER: Anita A. Watson (Croycroft Elementary School)
