Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
One in the "Pebbles Plus" series about mammals and their offspring, this picture book features large single page color photographs sure to capture a youngster's attention. The photographs feature Penguins in their natural habitat and progressively follow a young Penguin into early adulthood as they provide clues to beginning readers to decoding the text. The large print and minimal text are a plus for early readers, too. Unfortunately, the text never says where these unusual birds live in this world. A visual timeline of growth as well as an index, glossary and resources complete the book. 2004, Capstone Press, Ages 4 to 7.
— Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-These books present basic information for beginning readers. With a table of contents, glossary, index, Internet sites, and list for further reading, they work well for first reports. One or two large-type sentences per page face full-page, color photographs that vary in quality from excellent to mediocre, showing the animals from birth and early development to adulthood. The books conclude with a spread of four photos that show the animals from birth to adulthood. The transition stages are not smoothly illustrated. The first three pictures show very young animals, and the final picture jumps to a full-grown adult. The lists for further reading suggest similar books, any one of which treats the subject as well as these. The Internet sites are found using Fact Hound and vary in usefulness, depending on the animal. Overall, these titles are serviceable, but not outstanding.-Carolyn Janssen, Children's Learning Center of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
