School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-These three volumes are so oversimplified, beginning with their titles, that one may assume the intended audience has neither seen nor heard of these animals. Each book features nine one-page chapters with a full-page color photo on the facing page. Each chapter title asks a question, which the text attempts to answer. Important terms are printed in boldface and defined in the text and in a glossary. However, the presentation, accuracy, and quality of the writing leave much to be desired. Chicks has factual errors. The hen does not peck at the pipped egg to help the chick hatch as stated in the text. The third sentence of Lambs proclaims that, "This book is about lambs-." All three titles are plagued with statements that are presented as absolutes, such as time frames, numbers, diet, and size. The photography is of average quality, and some of the captions are a bit misleading or redundant. This author's "Farm Animal Discovery Library" (Rourke) is a better series, but has a slightly different scope and a higher reading level.-Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS (c) Copyright 2010.
