School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 3-Twenty-two mammals, some domestic and some wild, are highlighted, one per page. The range is wide, from dog, goat, and horse to orangutan, macaque, and wild boar. The top half of each page has a color photograph of the animal. The bottom half provides three or four interesting facts, with additional information or a question encircled in a balloon, and the answer adjacent to it. The subtitle is misleading as the animals are not arranged alphabetically. Also, many of the descriptions include words that are not easy to read, such as "communicate," "language," "relationship," etc. This book will be enjoyed by general readers and perhaps be somewhat useful for reports in the early grades.-Cathie Reed, The Montessori School, Lutherville, MD (c) Copyright 2010.
