Review
(The following is a combined review for Focus on Amphibians; Focus on Birds; Focus on Fish; Focus on Insects; Focus on Mammals; Focus on Reptiles; and ) Gr 3 – 4 — Introductory materials with gorgeous pictures, but many problems. While the language is clear, the tone is dry. Evidence of weak editing comes up in several places. For example, in Fish , a section is mistakenly titled, "Where do mammals live?" In Insects , the singular greenfly should have been plural, and in Birds , a "How to Keep Warm and Cool" text box lists only examples of how birds stay cool. Sections on keeping each subject as a pet are too brief to be of much use. Each book has a handy scale to compare the creatures' relative sizes. Fantastic photos show a tarsier, a flightless double-wattled cassowary, a close-up of a salamander swallowing a worm, and a rock python feasting on a deer. Unfortunately, the outstanding images can't make up for the sloppy text. --Anne Chapman Callaghan (Reviewed November 1, 2011) (School Library Journal, vol 57, issue 11, p22)
