Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
The life sciences are addressed in the "Looking at Animal Parts" series of library-bound books. Images and text combine to make the books ideal for early readers as well as very young children. Word repetition facilitates learning new words and building vocabulary. The photographs and formatting enhance the value of these books. The large, colorful photographs clearly illustrate the topic at hand, supporting the text. Large letters, ample spacing and the inclusion of just two sentences per page provide a format that is easy to read. The text provides a description of the variety of ways that animals use their legs and nine photographs show examples. Animals use their legs to move around. They use them to stay safe and find food. Some animals have two legs but some, such as millipedes, have hundreds. Spiders have eight legs. Cheetahs' legs help them run very fast, while tortoises' legs are stumpy and slow. A glossary, suggested reading and Internet sites are supplemental materials that boost the appeal of this well-designed, entertaining book.
