Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Compare and contrast two animals, a salamander and lizard. Learn to differentiate the two by their features. Which one lives in cool, damp places and which lives in warm, dry areas? The salamander and lizard are compared side-by-side on the layout. The color photographs provide close-up views and the labels provide the names of the different kinds of salamanders and lizards. The chapter titles indicate the comparison. The information pertaining to the salamander and lizard is summarized in two or three sentences. The text stands out in a colored spot on the page. One of the chapters is a summary of the different characteristics of the salamander and lizard. The last chapter has interesting information about the two animals. After the table of contents, readers will find that there is a list of vocabulary words with a pronunciation guide. These words are in larger print in the main body of the text. Included in the book is a list of additional resources (books and web sites). With adult guidance, younger children may enjoy making comparisons between the animals while young readers may need some guidance with the content vocabulary and informational text features. This book is part of the "Which Animal is Which?" series which examine other animals that look alike. This series makes a wonderful addition to a study unit on animals. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
