School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-These books provide a satisfactory but cursory overview of the assigned topics. Each one summarizes the physical features of the ecosystem, describes the plants and animals that live there, and mentions the human interactions that pose threats to the environment. Neither writing nor illustration is compelling enough to interest readers other than those writing reports. Rain Forest is unusual in its mention of temperate as well as tropical rain forests. However, that inclusion stretches coverage of every subtopic even thinner. Libraries with books such as Caleb Owens's Coral Reefs (Child's World, 1998) or Jonathan Grupper's Destination: Rainforest (National Geographic, 1997) and other basic titles can pass on these entries in crowded fields.-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato (c) Copyright 2010.
