Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
This is a great book for getting kids to think about a bit of science that is literally always right in front of them. There are lots of very special noses all around the animal kingdom, from a shark's shnozz to a human honker. Kids are bound to be interested in the huge nose on a proboscis monkey as well as a dog's amazing sense of smell. Noses can snort, sneeze, sniff, and breathe. An elephant can even use its nose to pick up a log! This fun, simple book has bright, colorful photographs and a helpful "Words You Know" section at the back. It is part of the "Rookie Read-About Science" series. 1999, Children's Press/Grolier Publishing, Ages 3 to 6, $19.00 and $4.95. Reviewer: Emily Schuster
