School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-7-Informative text and large, captioned photos explain how a fungus lives, what it eats, and how it reproduces. The writing is accessible and entertaining enough to keep readers engaged. Words in bold can be found in the glossary but no pronunciation guides are included. If your 589s need a boost, this is a reliable resource to add to Elaine Pascoe's Slime, Molds and Fungi (Blackbirch, 1998) and Charles Rotter's Fungi (Creative Education, 1994; o.p.).-Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
