Gr 1-2--This set places boxed text over clear, bright photographs that cover every spread. Each title begins by describing the particular home as well as which animals live there. Then seven different creatures that inhabit the respective places are portrayed. Nest, for example, offers information on four types of birds, two types of insects, and alligators. The writing is strong with a lot of information divulged in short sentences. Many pictures showcase the subjects' most appealing aspects, such as an adorable red fox peaking out of its den and a tree frog staring wide-eyed from its perch. However, in Cave a not-so-endearing vampire bat bares its fangs. Back matter includes quizzes with true-or-false questions that can be answered by reading the texts. Basic information for beginning readers.[Page 22]. (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
