Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
From Lerner's "Early Bird Nature Books" series, here is a book with simple text, vocabulary check opportunities and stunning photographs. Packed with information on habitat, history, social and feeding habits and more, this book will inspire the budding naturalist, and invite those readers new to the wonder of whales. An index and glossary are also included. An additional useful feature is a note to adults on activities and strategies on using the book and building on children's curiosity about the world around them.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3These series entries are not at all satisfying. The texts are uneven, dry, and appear to have been compiled according to a formula. The full-color photographs are blurry and unpolished. A note to adults in each one includes rhetoric on sharing a book, introducing the index, and a few other topics that can be found elsewhere. Patricia Lauber's Great Whales (Holt, 1991) is written on a slightly higher level and the quality of its text and photographs is far superior. For information on ants, turn to Arthur Dorros's Ant Cities (HarperCollins 1987), an easy-to-read book that includes similar material presented with clarity and enthusiasm.Olga Kuharets, New York Public Library
