Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This entry in the "Pull Ahead" series provides easy reading text on informational subjects using an inviting page design and colored but undramatic photographs compared to other books in the series. Iguana development, food sources, mobility, basking habits and predators are mentioned. Occasional question-and-answer text encourages young readers to predict and confirm while keeping them interested. Endmatter includes a map of the North American iguana habitats (the American and Mexican desert areas), a glossary, a clear diagram of the parts of an iguana's body and an index-like section called "Hunt and Find." The book is a great introduction to the topic, just right for young report writers and a perfect nonfiction book for first and second grade information seekers. 2001, Lerner, $21.27 and $6.95. Ages 5 to 8. Reviewer: Susan Hepler
Children's Literature - Jamie Hain
Readers receive an introduction to the lifestyle of iguanas in this informative book that focuses mainly on the desert iguana found in the United States and Mexico. Bright, colorful pages filled with photographs teach readers about the iguana's habitat, habits, predators, and the iguana's ability to break off and then regrow its own tail. Featuring a map of the desert iguana's range and a diagram labeling its various body parts, this book provides readers with a detailed overview of the desert iguana. Like all books in the "Animal Close-Ups" series in the "Lightning Bolt Books" collection, this book contains a glossary of iguana related terms, a quick reference index, and a guide to print and online sources of further reading about iguanas. This sturdy book would make a great addition to elementary school libraries or other collections serving young children with a nature or animal focused curriculum. This book would also fit well in a classroom where the teacher wanted to provide the students with easy to access information about the class pet. Reviewer: Jamie Hain
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2–These easy readers introduce distinctly different animals (some, such as pigeons, prairie dogs, and bats, are united in their “perceived pest” status) in a fun way. Fresh photography, a creative use of graphics, and a collagelike layout make them eye-catching. Interactive text (“Why are all these bats upside down?”) and a “Fun Facts” page in Bats, Pigeons, and Snails will engage readers. Each book ends with a labeled diagram of the animal, a range map, and a further-reading list that includes print and online resources in a single list, a nice way of validating both types of materials.
