Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Peg Glisson
This large amphibian spends nearly all its life underwater, breathing through its skin. Nocturnal, it lives in water-filled caves in China and has such small eyes that it hunts using smell and touch rather than sight. Pollution, dams, and people threaten these giants, and efforts to protect them are underway. Basic facts such as these are presented in an accessible, age-appropriate text that will engage children, as will the high quality photographs. Information is clearly presented, using many of the conventions of nonfiction to facilitate reading for meaning, including fact boxes, labels, habitat maps, size comparison diagrams, and a picture glossary. Three titles for recommended reading and three web sites with more information conclude the book. This high-quality nonfiction, another entry in Bearport's "SuperSized!" series, is just right for young researchers or browsers. Reviewer: Peg Glisson
