Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 2-6-- These books are flawed in several important ways. Attractive, full-color illustrations show each animal, but most of them have no background information or captions; thus they do nothing to elucidate the point of the series--looking at how animals live. In addition, the organization is elusive, and some of the animals seem to be in the wrong book. Water Animals includes many of the species one would expect--sharks, whales, seals, etc.--plus grizzly bears and moose. Readers' interest will be piqued by passing reference to skaus in Animals in the Cold, but this animal is not described or depicted. There is a mix between common and rare animals, and in one instance, an extinct species, the Tasmanian tiger, is included. The vocabulary is controlled, but complex, often awkward sentence structure may deter average and below-average readers. The lack of indexes will limit the books' usefulness to schools. --Susan H. Williamson, Homer-Center School District, PA
