Gr 1–3—Attention-grabbing photos of animals and their eyes suffuse this volume with appeal while offering readers insight into how animals, such as eagles, newts, bumble bees, and butterflies, see and why so many different kinds of eyes have developed. Covered are motion and color blindness, long eyelashes, night vision, and extra eyelids. Pre-readers will simply study the photos; older students will enjoy the simple text that gives the animal names and explains differences. An appendix discusses human vision.
VERDICT Of strong interest in most libraries for children.
