Gr 1-3–Across the animal kingdom, all kinds of creatures survive and thrive within the scope of their natural environments. This book focuses on four of these creatures—sharks, polar bears, gorillas, and dolphins—and many important elements of their behaviors and existence. Essentially, this book is composed of four individual books for early readers that have been combined to create a larger whole. In each smaller segment, the featured animal is introduced and speaks to the reader in the first person, while explaining a selection of facts about their life. Through carefully crafted phrases, readers collect facts about each animal in an accessible and enjoyable format. The books all mirror one another in style and presentation, using colorful blocks to frame much of the text alongside vivid, full color photographs. This visually engaging presentation connects newer readers to the facts being presented while allowing ample opportunity for rest and reflection. At the end of each section, readers will find a page of interesting statistics alongside a glossary that defines the more challenging vocabulary presented in bold within the rest of the relevant text. A note to parents and a table of contents at the beginning helps readers and their caregivers navigate the book more easily.
VERDICT Newer readers who enjoy gathering facts about animals within an accessible and engaging context will appreciate the quantity of information and the presentation found within this book.
