A good introduction to the animal kingdom for the younger child. The text and illustrations work well together - the different "kingdoms" are introduced and simply explained -- Donna Chasse, Fort Street Elementary, Jan. 1998
The Science of Living Things series demonstrates that Bobbie Kalman and her staff have turned out yet another informative and finely produced series of books. . . . this whole series would make a welcome addition to the elementary school library -- Kay Lehr, Fort Rouge School, Manitoba, Jan. 1999 --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Taken from Chapter 8: Fish built for swimming A fish's body is made up mostly of powerful muscles that are used for swimming. Fish swim by moving their body from side to side. Some swim slowly by moving their fins. Most fish, however, use their fins only to steer and keep themselves from rolling onto their side as they swim. Almost all fish have a swim bladder, a balloon-like organ that helps them float. When a fish lets air into its swim bladder, its body rises in the water. When it lets in water, its body sinks. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
