School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-8-Behler begins with an overview of characteristics applicable to all reptiles. Next, individual North American species are organized into four groups: crocodilians, turtles, lizards, and snakes. Clear, full-color photographs and short capsules of information make it easy to identify each animal and its relatives. The introduction in Trees addresses the characteristics of different North American types, which are then categorized by the shape of their leaves. However, not all trees with the same type of leaves are grouped together, making this title more difficult to use than Reptiles. In addition, some of the photographs are so small that it is impossible to use them for identification purposes. Both books include warnings if an animal or plant is considered harmful. Purchase Reptiles as a general introduction to the subject and Trees as a supplement to George A. Petrides's Peterson First Guide to Trees (Houghton, 1993) or Herbert Spencer Zim's Trees (Golden, 1989).-Michele Snyder, Chappaqua Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
