Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Enid Portnoy
Enlarged and colorful photographs of animals all the same color are part of the charm of the “All About a Rainbow of Animals” series. Each book is designed the pre-readers who will appreciate the large photographs and simple word choice, as they can identify words and phrases that link the words and pictures. Each title has an end page giving the briefest of information on sources that provide more animal information. Photographs in Yellow Animals feature a snake, a bird, a fish, and a monkey. When the child identifies each picture, it is a good opportunity to entertain further questions and answers about similarities and differences between pictures. The book is short, with only 24 pages, and there is no story line, but the reader and listener can certainly make one up. These nonfiction books are best used often and with enthusiasm as a first introduction to informational texts in early childhood. Even without a narrative, the information in this book can be highlighted by trips to see real animals and other yellow creatures. Reviewer: Enid Portnoy; Ages 4 to 7.
School Library Journal
PreS—Living things including insects, amphibians, birds, reptiles, fish, and mammals are grouped according to color. Only two words are used to describe each photo such as "yellow fish," "green snake," "blue spider," except for the last page, which depicts an animal with partial coloration such as "duck with a green head" or "owl with yellow eyes." The texts are brief and meant to reinforce color concepts, and the photos are clear close-ups. Because of the books' simplicity, children will feel as if they are really reading, and they'll pause to explore the engaging illustrations.—Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX

Doekit yawns, eyes half shur before snuggling farther into Lilywolf's fur. A lazy smile drifted across her maw, as the small shekit flitted in between dream state and reality. She could feel a presense in her dream, a small flitting figure. A light grey tabby with sad blue eyes, "Good night my little Doe." The tabby meowed, she was too young to remember this, but she knew that that shecat was close to her. How? She doesn't know. She just purred, and fell asleep with a feeling of security that not only one shecat was protecting her and keeping her warm but two. ~Sleeping Doekit
