Gr 2-4-These colorful series titles have fun facts and sharp, clear photos. Providing plenty of examples, they show how a variety of animals (mammals, fish, birds, insects, and reptiles) use their mouths, tails, or whiskers. For example, readers learn that leeches use their mouths to suck blood and can help save lives. Skinks can escape from their predators by leaving their tails behind. Manatees use their 600 short whiskers as fingers to help them find food. Kids will be captivated by the quirky use and build of certain animals' anatomy and will also be exposed to new creatures. The excellent-quality photographs, a conversational tone, short and concise sentences, and the large-font text make these books easily accessible for young readers. Youngsters will need to look elsewhere for report fodder, but those interested in animals will be fascinated by the information provided here.-Jennifer Cogan, Bucks County Free Library, Doylestown, PA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
