PreSchool-Grade 2--Each of these books con sists of a simple narrative that follows a representative animal through a sea son, year, or several years. The narra tives touch on habitat, eating habits, re production, and raising offspring. The text is followed by a "More about . . ." section, with a diagram of the animal's physical features and more technical in formation than the text contains. Un fortunately, the narrative does not indi cate which words in the text are defined in the glossary. Thus, readers are likely to be confused by words such as holt and a penguin's crop. Also, the writing is sketchy. For example, in one para graph of The Deer, the stag is one year old; two paragraphs later, "The stag is now six." Adequate color illustrations accompany the text, but the pages are cluttered by the unnecessary, some times confusing addition of black-and- white-sketches. In The Otter, one such drawing shows an otter and a fish mov ing through what appears to be the sky. More valuable introductory volumes include Emilie Lepthien's Penguins (Childrens, 1983) and Shaw's A Nest of Wood Ducks (Harper, 1976).
