Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Building an awareness of the wonderful hum of nature, this title challenges youngsters to identify animal sounds: the clicks of a dolphin, the chirp of a cricket, and the deep, resonant jug-o-rum-jug-o-rum coming from the rushes near the pond. Large, brightly-colored, digitally-created illustrations offer perspectives from down in the grasses to a hole high in a hollow tree. Fascinating fact boxes are pasted on the page to add higher level trivia to the main text. Young investigators may wish to go to the special Web search engine provided at the end of the book to access a few sites for extra information on any of the eight animals featured in the book. This book on sounds is part of a junior science series called "Whose Is It?" Other titles cover the habitats, products, prey and markings of familiar, but not always the most common, critters in the animal kingdom. Quizzes for the books in this series are already on the Accelerated Reader list. 2004, Picture Window Books, Ages 4 to 8.
