Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-An excellent introductory guide to an amazing plant-it is inviting in appearance, fun to read, and the information is carefully and logically organized. Starting with a map and a short list of scientific terms, Storad gives a vivid picture of cacti in general, with an emphasis on how they adapt to their seemingly inhospitable environment. The chapters describing the life cycle and longevity of the saguaro are particularly effective. The text is illustrated with clear, full-color photographs. A ``Notes to Adults'' section gives tips to parents and teachers about ways to use the book with children. Barbara A. Bash's Desert Giant (Little, 1989) is another basic look at the subject, told in story form with an environmental slant.-Steve Matthews, Foxcroft School, Middleburg, VA
