Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carly Reagan
They sleep upside down, have only three toes on their back legs, and move very slowly: they are sloths. And what funny furry creatures they are. Learn about these lazy leaf eaters who live in the rain forest in this title from the "Animals That Live in the Rain Forest" series. Short, simple sentences present introductory level knowledge, such as identifying features, predators, habitat, and eating habits of these cute and silly looking tree dwellers. Accompanying the easy-to-read text are bright color photographs of sloths in their natural habitats, pleasing to the eye and very inviting. The brief glossary in the back provides definitions for a few less common words, and suggestions are given for further reading and web surfing on the subject, for the child whose interest is sparked. Great for use in an early elementary classroom to encourage a more focused look at the individual animals in the rain forest. Reviewer: Carly Reagan

These small-format books provide basic information about the featured animal. Simple sentences about its habitat, food, and daily activities face full-color photographs. Beginning readers and young browsers interested in animals may enjoy these brief introductions, but libraries need to consider demand for such titles and the scope of current collections. In particular, frogs have received much photographic attention in picture books, starting with Joy Cowley and Nic Bishop's stunning Red-Eyed Tree Frog (Scholastic, 1999).-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato
