Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"Where does a tiger-heron spend the night? Deep in the mangroves, tucked out of sight." In Where Does a Tiger-Heron Spend the Night? by Margaret Carney, illus. by M lanie Watt, children lift a fold-out page on the right of each spread to reveal the second half of rhyming q&a couplets. Vibrant acrylics provide close-ups of the creatures and their natural surroundings. Additional information about each bird appears in the final spread. (Mar.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
This foldout picture book poses a question about each of twelve featured birds including the tiger-heron, storm-petrel, toucan, osprey, lyrebird, hummingbird, nightjar, spoonbill, roadrunner, ptarmigan, vulture, and whimbrel. The answer to the question is hidden in the foldout section of the right page and happens to rhyme beautifully with the question. Stunning illustrations show the birds in their natural surroundings, including accurate information about habitat, behavior, appearance and diet. The end of the book has a paragraph about each of the featured birds, which gives further interesting information to the reader. This read-again book offers science and poetic language development opportunities. 2002 Kids Can Press,
— Judith Bean
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Vibrant, up-close acrylic illustrations of unusual birds make this lift-the-flap book appealing to children, although the vocabulary is challenging for all but the most advanced primary readers. For example, bright oranges and purples paired with deep browns combine for a dramatic view of a turkey vulture, accompanied by the text, "Why does a vulture soar high overhead?" The answer, however, which with the lift of a flap shows a group of vultures picking bones, contains words that defy the decoding strategies of most young readers: "It's sniffing the wind for the scent of the dead." The lyrebird is said to be "mimicking other birds warbling in spring," and the snacks that a roadrunner "grind[s] in its gizzard" are "Tarantulas, rattlesnakes, beetles and lizards." While the rhyming text is interesting, it is not typical of books intended for a young audience. The lively illustrations and presentation of facts make this book a delightful read-aloud for budding naturalists, but it is an additional purchase for most collections.-Lynn Dye, Keheley Elementary School, Marietta, GA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
