Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
There are many symbiotic relationships in nature and the focus of this book is animals. The opening spread presents a zebra with an Oxpecker on its back. These birds provide a service to animals like hippopotamuses, rhinoceroses and oxen, by eating the blood-sucking insects that reside on the skins of these large mammals. The birds eat and the animals are relieved of these pests that can potentially bring on diseases. Relationships of this nature also exist in the sea where cleaner shrimp eat the debris that could make an eel sick and cleaner gobies do the same sort of cleaning for tiger groupers. In some cases the relationship results in one animal transporting the other to a new location which happens with the decorator crabs and sponges. Others team up to find food such as the honeyguide bird and the ratel (honey badger). Once the bird locates a bee's nest, the badger tears it apart and eats his fill and then the honey guide snares what is left. The relationship may also be one that assists in the reproduction cycle—for example bees seeking nectar convey pollen form one plant to another thus helping the plant produce new seeds from the pollination process. The full color photographs and easy digested text provide great examples of the wonders of nature and how plants and animals work together. There is a brief glossary defining six terms. While this is an early reader it could be used in an ESOL program or with older students who are not reading on grade level. A Level 3 book in the "Scholastic Reader" series with a Lexile of 920 and a word count of 754. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
