Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Surviving on a diet of bamboo stems, panda cubs spend ten to sixteen hours a day eating. They consume between twenty to forty pounds of bamboo during that time. These and many more amazing facts about panda cubs are explained in a simple narrative. This book also features many interesting statistics and provides numerous colorful photos of an animal that is widely adored yet commonly unknown. Young readers will appreciate the comparison to human mothers and will surely relate to the playfulness of the young cubs. The book is part of the "Animals and Their Young" series. 2001, Compass Point Books, $18.60. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer: Denise Daley

K-Gr 2-In these books, each full page answers a question about the gestation, birth, and growth of the featured young animal. Close-up color photos of a newborn joey that "weighs about as much as a paper clip" and of a pink-skinned panda will interest young researchers. Kangaroo and panda families illustrate characteristic colors and answer the questions "What Do Joeys Do and Eat?" and "What Happens As a Cub Grows Older?" There are "Did You Know?" and "Want to Know More?" sections. The books do not show the locations or habitats of these animals, but they would still interest browsers. These titles will supplement nonfiction collections that already own "New True" or "Rookie Reader" titles (all Children's).- Melanie S.
