School Library Journal - Suzanne Myers Harold

"These titles trace the lives of four animals from birth to maturity. Each book reads like a story with scientific details woven into the narrative. Events described are typical and not overtly fictionalized. For example, while the panda cub waits for his mother to return with food, he watches a squirrel, two takin, and a golden pheasant. Each book begins with a few facts about the animal and concludes with a location map and a list of "fun facts." Small text boxes provide additional information without interrupting the narrative flow. Other animals common to each habitat are shown and labeled. The large, cut-paper illustrations are generally successful; occassionally, they appear awkward and flat (particularly the image of the mother panda holding her newborn). For Web sites, the readers are directed to the FactHound site with a 10-digit code to enter. A list of sites then appears, but not are all specifically related (the code for pandas brings up sites about mammals, including the American bison and beavers). These titles work well as read-alouds and provide enough factual information for simple reports." - School Library Journal

"Caroline Arnold began a successful and prolific career as a children's author over 25 years ago. Although her training was as an artist, and her original plan was to illustrate her own books, the nonfiction science topics she writes about lend themselves to photographic illustrations instead. This new series titled Caroline Arnold's Animals is illustrated with cut paper illustrations by the author, giving the books a unique look compared with other animal books written for children that use photographs. A Zebra's World is 24 pages long and is written for children ages 5-9. The book follows the life of a zebra foal from her birth on the African plains to one year of age. Boxed facts on several pages expand the concepts presented in the associated section. In addition, a map, "fun facts," a glossary, an index, a short list of further readings, and references to Web sites are provided. The text was reviewed for accuracy by advisers at the San Diego Zoo. This book, as well as other titles in the series, can be enjoyed by older children alone or can provide the basis for a read-to-me learning experience for younger children. I recommend A Zebra's World highly for public libraries." - Science Books & Films

NSTA Recommends - Sarah Haines

"This is one book in a series that teaches young readers (grades K-4) about the natural history and adaptations of animals. It is both an attractive and age-appropriate choice for elementary classrooms. Penguins will motivate students and encourage them to read more. Some of the book's highlights include descriptions of classification and general body size of Adelie penguins, their behavior, morphological and physiological adaptations, and geographical distribution. The book ends with a short glossary and a list of websites and books that readers can use to gether more information about these animals. The binding is just the right size to use as a read-aloud for youngsters in grades K-2, and the attractive cut-paper illustrations are guaranteed to draw their attention. Readers in grades 3 and 4 will enjoy reading the text on their own. The content is aligned with National Science Education Standard C (Life Science) for the elementary grades and is particularly useful in its coverage of life cycles." - NSTA Recommends
