Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

ea. vol: 47p. illus. by Alcuin C. Dornisch. maps. (Early Nature Picture Bks.). CIP. Lerner. 1987. PLB $5.95 Grade 1-4 Each book concentrates on ten animals with the titled common character istic. Each chapter presents an animal's habits and behaviors. A small map and fact list (height, weight, habitat, food, young, lifespan) finish each chapter. The last page of each book shows the animals drawn to scale in silhouette, with an adult woman and a boy included for compari son. Animal Specialists are all animals with some unique characteristic in terms of size, food needs, hunting technique, mi gration, etc. Horned Animals discusses the reasons animals have horns, how in some species both male and female sport a pair, and how horns are different from ant lers. Man-Eating Animals introduces the basic needs of carnivores and explains how they have adapted to become excel lent hunters. Prey Animals looks at the flip side of carnivores. The illustrations are limited to one color portrait of each animalfull page and nicely detailed and a map of the animal's range. An inher ent problem with grouping animals in these narrow categories, though, is that many children will find the group style of book fragmented and difficult to under stand. For reports, ``Nature's Children'' series (Grolier) is preferred. Elisabeth LeBris, Kenilworth Public School System, Ill.
