School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-3-The topics of these additions to a continuing series may be random, but the high production values and big, riveting-often extreme close up-photographs provide consistent viewing pleasure. Both Snake and Spider offer multiple shots taken from, seemingly, an inch or less away, along with you-are-definitely-there scenes of the creatures chowing down on prey and of eggs hatching, or, in the case of a boa constrictor, giving live birth amid streams of blood and slime. Eagle focuses on eggs and (unlovely, except possibly to eagle parents) nestlings, but also includes glimpses of various species in soaring flight. For squeamish readers, Apple offers informative and less disturbing views of seeds, seedlings, grown trees, and flowers maturing into delicious-looking fruit. Pitched to somewhat older audiences than the publisher's "Creepy Creatures" and "Living Wild" series, the accompanying commentaries provide select but specific detail notes on physical characteristics, diets, reproduction, and life cycles. The last is also summarized in a recap at the end of each title. (c) Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
