Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-K-With appealing covers, large type, and bright photographs of adorable animals, these books are bound to please. On each left-hand page, a short sentence describes a zoo animal's sleeping or water-related behavior, which is then illustrated in the photo on the right. Children will recognize many of the animals, though a few may be unfamiliar (crested crane, ibex). Sleepytime captures the quieter side of zoo life with pictures of a koala sleeping on its mother's back and flamingos dozing standing up, while Splashtime captures animals in their more playful moments, showing tigers playing ball and polar bears boxing. The books will be a hit with the preschool storytime crowd, who will enjoy guessing the names of the animals pictured. Although the texts include some difficult words (orangutan, rhinoceros), most of the vocabulary is simple enough for beginning readers. Primarily enjoyable for their beautiful photographs, these books also provide basic information on animal behavior and help fill the need for easy nonfiction.-Dawn Amsberry, formerly at Oakland Public Library, CA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
