Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Extraordinary cut paper illustrations and simple, well-written text introduces young readers to the world of the killer whale, from birth to adult, in this book from the "Caroline Arnold's Animals" series. The baby orca is anything but tiny, weighing as much as 400 pounds. But he has the needs of any baby: milk from his mother, nurturing, and protection. Sidebars explain details of orca life while text includes how the calf's needs are met. For instance, the slow-swimming calf and mother are kept in the center of the pod for protection. He learns to eat solid food by watching his mother and other adults as they consume fish. It will take him twenty years to reach adulthood, all the while remaining in the pod into which he was born. This book is a joy to read and includes a world map, fun facts (did you know some killer whales have lived to be eighty years old?), a glossary, a bibliography, an index, and safe Internet sites. 2006, Picture Window Books/Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 7.

PreS-Gr 2-These titles trace the lives of four animals from birth to maturity. Each book reads like a story with scientific details woven into the narrative. Events described are typical and not overtly fictionalized. For example, while the panda cub waits for his mother to return with food, he watches a squirrel, two takin, and a golden pheasant. Each book begins with a few facts about the animal and concludes with a location map and a list of "fun facts." Small text boxes provide additional information without interrupting the narrative flow. Other animals common to each habitat are shown and labeled. The large, cut-paper illustrations are generally successful; occasionally, they appear awkward and flat (particularly the image of the mother panda holding her newborn). For Web sites, readers are directed to the FactHound site with a 10-digit code to enter. A list of sites then appears, but not all are specifically related (the code for pandas brings up sites about mammals, including American bison and beavers). These titles work well as read-alouds and provide enough factual information for simple reports.-Suzanne Myers Harold, Multnomah County Library System, Portland, OR Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
