Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 2-4--Two books in a series aimed at introducing young readers to the habitats and lifestyles of various members of the animal kingdom. Each double-page chapter provides general information and boxed insets that give additional facts, e.g., "A beaver family cuts down hundreds of trees a year." The texts are simple enough for newly independent readers to handle with little difficulty. The information is fairly general, but it's sufficient for short reports. Full-page drawings clearly illustrate their subjects. Of the two books, Beavers is slightly more successful, mainly because it focuses on one animal and thus can provide more detail. Deer, on the other hand, is a bit sketchy because it tries to cover several animals, devoting little space to each of them. The "New True" books (Children's) have slightly easier to read texts and photos that are not always as clear as the drawings featured in these books. Serviceable additions.

Format: Hardcover
If you have a school report to write about beavers this book would be very useful. The illustrations are interesting and helpful and I liked the "beaver facts" they included on the page corners. The book is very informative.

This book has drawings and not real life photos. The text is a little on the weak side, too.

Perfect book to go with a quilt about a day at the zoo. My nephews favorite animal was a beaver!
