Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carolyn Mott Ford
The text and pictures in this book offer detailed information to young readers about the life cycle and physical characteristics of alligators. The pictures are from various sources and while many are of alligators in their natural habitat, there are also some unusual illustrations including close-ups of the body and belly scales, an x-ray of an alligator's skeleton, and clinical photos of an alligator's innards, including food recently consumed. The text is appealingly written and will hold the interest of children curious about the creatures who lumber so painfully across the ground, but who can glide gracefully or swim powerfully through water. Although alligators have a mouthful of teeth, they cannot chew and must swallow their food whole. A glossary/index is included along with a "Looking Back" section posing questions for the reader. The young researcher will find this book an excellent source of information. Part of the "Outside and Inside" series.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Beginning with an enthusiastic, "Alligators are amazing!," Markle drives home her point in this accessible and visually appealing introduction. Writing in the second person, she places the animals on a more immediate, personal level for readers as in the comment, "You have twenty-four back bones; an alligator has sixty-five." Large, full-color photographs abound, enhancing every page. Close-up pictures of the animal's stomach and its contents, along with other internal organs, have a certain gross appeal. They are offset by delightful photographs of hatchlings and a gator mom nose to nose with her baby. Unbroken by chapter divisions, the text will draw browsers and report writers alike. Phyllis Perry's Crocodilians (Watts, 1997) offers much the same information and includes habitat maps. Markle's appealing title won't sit on library shelves for long.-Anne Chapman Callaghan, Racine Public Library, WI
