Children's Literature - Sarah RaymondAnimals are interesting creatures with interesting habits and rather interesting lives, as they are so different from our own. Where some animals live also proves just as interesting. For example, asked about where birds live, people generally think of trees with little nests nestled on the branches. However, this is not the case for the Cactus Wren, which creates its home inside an actual cactus to keep its eggs safe from predators. This is one of the many animals and homes discussed in Bredeson's book. Although the focus is on homes, Bredeson does include other interesting animal facts as warranted; for example, the Anglerfish uses a mysterious light to lure its prey in to its home. Each page ends with the line "it's weird, but it's true!" The predictability allows even young readers to participate in reading the book. One complaint is that the book is too short. The fun little stories and great pictures leave the reader wanting more. Part of the "Weird but True Science" series. Reviewer: Sarah Raymond
