Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Young naturalists will learn about the twenty-eight types of rabbits, squirrels and chipmunks that live throughout the United States. Children will love reading about not only the animals in their own states and communities, but also about the different types living throughout America. Each animal is presented on a single page which includes a physical description of it, what it eats, and where it is found. As a teacher this book is a gold mine for a cross curriculum approach of studying geography (find where all the animals live), math (compare size and weight of the animals) as well as the animal study connections. Sturdily bound, this is perfect for nonfiction animal collections in schools, classrooms, and public libraries. In addition to the informative text and illustrations, there are easily reproduced activities such as creating a squirrel nut-ball and a chipmunk swimming pool. Additional sources of information are cited including video and web resources. Part of the "Young Naturalist Field Guides" series that includes a variety of books about flowers, trees, amphibians and birds. 2000, Gareth Stevens Publishing, Ages 5 to 12, $21.27 and $6.95. Reviewer: Wendy Pollock-Gilson—Children's Literature
This book can help eager young naturalists identify several different species of rabbits, squirrels, and chipmunks that they may encounter where they live. This guide provides information about what each species looks like, where it lives, and what it eats. The author also includes step-by-step instructions for fun related activities. Very nice. Part of the "Young Naturalist Field Guides" series. 2000, Gareth Stevens Publishing, $15.95. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: S. Kleven SOURCE: Parent Council Volume 8
