Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Enid Portnoy
This early reader helps the very young learn simple concepts by using limited vocabulary and short phrases linked to colorful photographs of animals of the same basic color. Just a few words introduce each of the nine orange creatures with enlarged views that make them easier to identify. This is exclusively a picture book without a story and invites the adult reader to add comments as they turn pages. The book is a part of the “All About a Rainbow of Animals” series emphasizing color as the unifying trait to group the animals. Constant reading and looking at the clear photographs, which are eye catching, may help children remember the word identifiers when they think of these orange animals. There is a brief mention of web sites for additional information. It might be a good idea to have several books in the series on hand to move from one color to another and begin conversations about color identification as well as animals and other natural creatures. The last page in the book provides additional sources of information. 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

A cat slunk in, undected. It was almost as if it was merely a shadow. It rolled its eyes when it saw Sparrowkit. Choosing to disregard the kit, it crept over behind Cinderwolf. It paused for a moment before nudging the kit away harshly, flipping the medicine cat over, and sinking its fangs deep in Cinderwolf's throat, puncturing the jugular vein. There was no sound, just eerie silence as blood seeped from the tom's throat. The cat smirked, proud of its work, then slunk back out as if it were never even there. -The End-
