Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
Forty-five pages of maps show where animals live. A brightly painted map of the world is covered with renderings of animals that reveal the general distribution of a few selected species. Maps of the regions of the world identify a larger number of animals and show them in the locations to which they are native. Various habitats are illustrated. Those featured habitats are deserts, woodlands, rainforests, Himalayan, savannas, and coral reefs. The Himalayan animals are the snow leopard, yak, marmot, pika, and musk deer. The savanna is home to elephants, hippopotamus, zebras, gazelles, warthogs, and pangolin. Each map has a side bar with a penguin character that provides a fact about one of the animals illustrated on the page. The reader is asked to find the featured animal on the map, adding an element of interaction. A cardboard cutout penguin serves as a bookmark with the legend printed on its belly. A ribbon attaches the bookmark to the spine of the book so that it won't be lost. A large laminated poster with a world map is detachable from the back of the book.
