Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
Imagine having hair like a polar bear or a reindeer. This creative book explores what it would be like to have hair like a wild animal. Each spread features information about the animal and its hair on one page, and thoughts about how it would look for humans to have similar hair, as well as what purpose the hair might be. A photo of each animal is shown along with the descriptive paragraph; an added fact appears at the bottom of the page. For example, polar bear hair would help with playing outdoors in cold and wet weather, and you would never need a hat. Reindeer hair would make swimming easy, since it has a hollow core that helps with flotation. Markle includes hair facts about the musk ox, oryx, zebra, three-toed sloth, Artic fox, porcupine, and the star-nosed mole. After several pages about the virtues of having you own hair, readers are asks what kind of animal hair you would choose to have for more than a day. One page reviews how hair grows, while another page discusses how to take care of your hair. The photos are good, and the illustrations are hilarious. This book provides a fun way for young children to learn more about animals and would be a good selection for schools and libraries. It could be read aloud to young children, and independent readers should be able to handle most of the vocabulary. Reviewer: Vicki Foote; Ages 7 to 10.
