About the Author:

Linda Capus Riley is an award-winning journalist who has written three non-fiction children's books.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2?Elephants swim gracefully, holding their trunks out of the water as snorkels. But what do other animals do? Sixteen wonderfully diverse animals, each with its own way of dealing with water, plunge, paddle, and propel themselves across the double-page spreads. Richly textured, full-color paper collages are accompanied by short rhyming sentences. "Hippos sink to the bottom to sleep. Wildebeests wade where the water's not deep." The point here: there are many ways to swim. "How about you?" readers are asked at the end. Notes illuminating further facts about each animal's water habits follow. The writing is clear, straightforward, and will stimulate further interest. However, the arbitrary use of male and female pronouns seems forced. "An elephant swims with her whole body," and "seven minutes after a baby wildebeest is born she can run." Armadillos and polar bears are referred to as "he." Nevertheless, the writing is sound and the beauty of the collages alone make this a welcome addition to any collection.?Lisa Wu Stowe, Great Neck Library, NY
