Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
Children can learn beginning science and reading from the "Looking at Animal Parts" series of library-bound, level-one readers. Images and text combine to make the book ideal for early readers and very young children alike. Word repetition facilitates learning vocabulary acquisition and development. The photographs and format enhance the value of these books. Large, colorful photographs clearly illustrate the topic at hand, supporting the text. Big letters, ample spacing and only two sentences per page provide a format that is easy to read. The narrative provides a description of the many different ways that animals use their tails, while photographs show examples of nine. Kangaroos use them to jump; scorpions use them for protection. A rattlesnake uses the rattle on its tail to scare predators away. Opossums hold on to branches with their tails. Dolphins have flat tails they use for swimming, and seahorses have curly tails they use for holding on to plants. A glossary, a list of suggested reading material and a list of Internet sites boost the appeal of this well-designed, entertaining book.
