Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Keri Collins Lewis
Why do elephants swing their trunks? To collect odors from the air! How do bats see in the dark? With their ears, of course! Why do rabbits wiggle their noses? For the same reason elephants swing their trunks! Husband-and-wife team Gilda and Melvin Berger give easy-to-understand answers to these and seventeen other questions, in a fun book designed to engage early readers in learning about mammals. Illustrated with full-color photographs, this clever nonfiction title is arranged in a question-and-answer format. A simple answer appears in a pull-out box, while a more detailed explanation follows. Twenty bonus facts about the animals featured in the book appear at the end of the book, as if the authors could not bear to leave out some of the interesting information gleaned in their research. Readers will be glad they didn't! A glossary and an index introduce young audiences to common features included in nonfiction books and offer the opportunity to learn how to use them. Written for first through third graders, this book is the second title in the "20 Questions" series. In addition to mammals children are personally familiar with, such as dogs and cats, the Bergers include marine mammals, farm animals, and common exotic mammals, such as lions and giraffes. With the renewed focus on the importance of reading and comprehending nonfiction texts, this informative yet appealing book is a strong addition to any home, classroom, or school library.
