PreSchool-- Within these titles is a wealth of very brief trivia illustrated with cartoons and full-color photographs. Readers are given a fact or two per two-page spread. The statements are straightforward, and the illustrations are clear and appropriate to the text. Unfortunately, the audience for these books will be extremely limited. While children might be interested in some of the information, it won't satisfy their curiosity. They're likely to ask why or how or when after hearing each statement, thereby making the books a rather frustrating experience for both parent and child. Books in the "New True Series" (Childrens) are better choices. --J. J.

If a boomer and a flyer get together, a joey could result. That is, male kangaroos are called "boomers"; females, "flyers"; and little ones, you guessed it. A male penguin, instead of making a nest, holds an egg on its feet to keep it warm until it hatches; lucky Mrs. Penguin. These basic facts are set forth at the rate of one idea per page in each of two introductory books illustrated with outstanding color photographs and accented with humorous, cartoon-style drawings. The books offer some extraordinary facts along with more familiar knowledge; this is worthwhile nonfiction for lower primary grade readers, or even reluctant readers. Ages 2-up.
