Gr 2-5–This is a gorgeous illustrated work featuring facts about animal habitats while combining the enthralling aspect of popular search-and-find books like “I Spy.” With facts and clear diagrams of animal food chains, the text and graphics complement each other to give a wonderful overview of the surrounding world, as well as the living creatures in it. Each section of the book features a different animal habitat with a description, followed by a detailed food-chain diagram starting with energy from the sun feeding the plant life, all the way to the small animals feeding the predators. The habitats range from coral reefs to the savanna and show a diverse range of wildlife. Three colors are used for each section’s artwork, giving it a simple and clean look that fits well with the book’s overall tone. Following the food-chain spreads are scenes of the habitats where readers have to find the animals and plants that are now depicted all in one color, providing enough of a challenge to make this a worthy activity book.
VERDICT A perfect addition to elementary school nonfiction collections where animals and search-and-find activity books are popular
