Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Starred Review. Grade 1–5—In this new take on animal adaptation, readers are asked to guess how six different animals might hatch an egg, use a leaf, eat a clam, or dig a hole. They can then turn the page to see how the creatures, ranging from the well-known grizzly bear to the unusual white tent bat, pull off the task. Jenkins and Page have done a remarkable job of selecting animals with unique adaptations and organizing them into categories for the gamelike feel of the book. The explanations in the body of the book and in the more detailed end matter are clear and engaging. Jenkins's beguiling slender loris on the cover, with its torn-paper fur and uncannily realistic eyes, draws readers into a menagerie of detailed paper art. This is good science, organized and illustrated for joyful learning.—Ellen Heath, Easton Area Public Library, Easton, PA

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Like Jim Arnosky’s Gobble It Up! (reviewed on p.103), this picture book is about the food chain, but there is much more scientific depth and detail here. The facts about how particular animals escape danger and evade predators to stay alive are just as exciting as the facts about hunting. With clear, gorgeous, freestanding images in cut- and torn-paper collage, each double-page spread shows detailed species close up, as well as the connections between animals. As salmon swim upstream to lay their eggs, a grizzly bear grabs a leaping fish in midair, and the text tells how. Then there are amazing descriptions of how various animals lay, protect, and hatch their eggs; how they use leaves (in an unforgettable small picture, an orangutan in the rain forest holds a large leaf overhead as an umbrella); how flies use their large eyes and lightning-fast reflexes to escape; and how animals dig holes to escape from enemies or to find food. At the back, two double-page spreads with beautiful small images add detailed notes about each creature for older children. An enthralling read-aloud, especially in small groups, where children can crowd up close to the images. Preschool-Grade 3. --Hazel Rochman
