Editorial Reviews

Criticas
PreS-Gr 2-Each volume in this beginner animal series presents basic information in simple language on appealing two-page spreads illustrated by line drawings on one side and a closeup photo of a single animal on the other. Two pages of questions at the end of each book add to its value for primary school collections. Also recommended for public libraries and bookstores. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
All species of birds have common characteristics, but this book informs readers of their differences. Woodpeckers use their beaks to carve out holes in trees for their homes, to search for insects under the tree bark, and to scare other birds away from the nests, but it is the woodpecker's powerful tail that helps it to maintain its balance while pecking away. On the other hand, flamingoes don't rely on trees to survive. Instead they create their nests by building mud piles on which they place their eggs; they search for their food underwater. Grown pelicans also catch their food from the sea whereas their young obtain their meals by eating right out of their mothers' mouths. Full-page color photographs, cute illustrations and simple text inform readers about other bird species as well. Those discussed include parrots, eagles, swans, owls, hummingbirds and penguins, the latter of which use their wings for swimming rather than flying, contrary to the book's opening statement that, above all, all classes of birds can fly. In spite of this minor oversight, this book, part of the "Descubre los animales" series, would make excellent reading material for students interesting in learning about birds as well as entertaining listening material for students just learning to read. A section of questions is available on the final pages to use as a review. 2001, Two-Can Publishing, $9.95 and $5.95. Ages 3 to 7. Reviewer: Ramirose Ilene Attebury
