Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Two-Can launches the Ladders series for children just beginning to read. Each spread includes one or two photographs and a fact box to highlight information. For instance, in Wild Animals by Sarah Fecher and Deborah Kespert, illus. by Peter Utton, a spread about the giraffe includes a photo of a giraffe taking a drink from a pond, another photo of a baby giraffe taking cover beneath its mother, a drawing of two giraffes feeding from a tree and a fact box explaining that the size of its tongue allows a giraffe to lick behind its ears; each volume closes with puzzles and a story. Other titles in the series: Under the Sea by Angela Wilkes, illus. by Steve Holmes; Me and My Body by Wilkes, illus. by Rhian Nest James; On the Move by Fecher and Kespert; Rain Forest Animals by Wilkes and Sarah Levette; Tough Trucks by Wilkes and Levette; Animal Homes by Wilkes; and Rain and Shine by Kespert.

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-This well-coordinated book/CD-ROM program achieves its purpose of providing instruction in word recognition, vocabulary building, and comprehension. It is easy to install and includes instructions on installing Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to print the write-in activities on the CD-ROM. The book is illustrated with both photographs and drawings of a wide range of African animals. Animals described in detail include the rhinoceros, hippopotamus, elephant, giraffe, cheetah, lion, zebra, chimpanzee and birds. There is a story about the weaverbird which includes many of the other African animals. The large, colorful illustrations should appeal to the intended audience. The puzzles and activities are included in the book as well as on the disk. The disk offers British or American narration. Users begin a safari by creating a picture album and then driving a jeep around to collect pictures of five different animals. A picture is awarded to users for successfully completing the game. Clear, step-by-step instructions are given, and the graphics are colorful. The games include animation, fact-filled narration, and activities such as a jigsaw puzzle, a game identifying animals from pictures of their parts, a sticker game, matching animals and their skins, and a chutes and ladders type game which can be played against another person or the computer. Frequent spoken positive reinforcement is given when the correct answers are chosen. The program is visually appealing, and the pace is controlled by users responses.-Diane Balodis, Alden Intermediate School, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
From The Critics
True or false: Chimpanzees make their own beds! Hippos turn pink when they leave the water. A rhino walks on tiptoe. A giraffe can wrap its extremely long tongue around its head. While these statements may sound like delightful fiction they are actually tantalizing facts about wild animals of Africa. These facts and more are found in one of a series of books designed to introduce young readers to topics such as wildlife, transportation, ocean creatures and rain forests. Each book contains a busy mix of illustrations and photographs, vocabulary words, facts, puzzles and a story incorporating material from the earlier factual sections. In Wild Animals the authors mention twelve African species including the lion, giraffe, rhino, elephant, and weaverbird. In a typical section, the text relates that lions live in prides and that when the mother brings food home, "the father lion always digs in first." The fact tip on the lions' page reveals that "When two lions from the same pride meet, they rub their heads together. This shows that they are friends." One photograph shows a tired father lion sleeping, his head resting on one leg and another dangling as he naps on a large branch of a tree. A second shows cute lion cubs learning "to be fierce by playing and trying to fight with the mother lion." A handsome watercolor illustration of a roaring lion in the center of the double-page spread points to and explains the parts of the lion: coat, paw, teeth, and roar. ("A mighty roar frightens other animals away.") The book, developed in consultation with the London Zoo, shows a particularly intriguing photograph of a baby cheetah with its mother. The surprising, long, fuzzy, silver mane fromthe top of the cheetah cub's head down its back makes the baby look as if it had served as a model for characters in "Star Wars." The book has both an index and table of contents so that youngsters can become familiar with these reference tools as they enjoy the pictures, games, and puzzles.
