Children's LiteratureMr. Pelican spends all his time grooming himself and does not ever need to go fishing. The other pelicans are interested in discovering his secret so they can spend time grooming as well, instead of catching fish all day long. This story line is a little more far fetched than the others in this series, but it is interesting, nonetheless. The pictures in the book are close-up pictures of the pelicans at work. Early readers will enjoy this book because of the simplicity of the story line and the size of the font. This series, "Animal Storybooks," is crafted to be simple to read and true to life featuring the animals of Australia. The end of the book contains information for adults to read, so they can explain the animal behaviors to children. Readers who enjoy nature and animals will enjoy reading this book about pelicans. Adults will enjoy the book because the children can read it on their own or have it read to them. 2006, Gareth Stevens Publishing, Ages 4 to 8.
