Sea anemones are as pretty as the flowers after which they are named. Readers discover spectacular photos of a range of sea anemone species, including magnificent anemones, northern red anemones, and brooding anemones. Easy-to-follow text offers many fun facts, both in the main body of the text and in a special two-page fact spread. These fun, scientific facts include how anemones eat only the soft parts of their prey and spit out the shells and bones. Another fact budding ichthyologists and curious minds will discover is that a sea anemone’s stinging tentacles not only keep it safe but also protect other animals, such as clown fish, that hide among them.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2-4-Magby introduces three types of common marine invertebrates on a series of spreads. In each one, two or three short paragraphs of text describe the animals' major physical and behavioral characteristics, senses, habitats, diets, feeding methods, reproduction, and natural enemies. A clear color photo of one or more of the animals, many of which are close-ups, accompanies the text on almost every page, along with extended captions offering additional information on characteristics. Most of the texts are clearly written, with some exceptions. For instance, Lobsters states, "All lobsters have 10 legs. Clawed lobsters have one pair of claws and four pairs of walking legs." It is not clear that the front appendages with claws are the fifth pair of legs. Sea Anemones states that all of these invertebrates are "carnivores," but one photo depicts, and the caption describes, a strawberry anemone feeding on a piece of kelp, an unexplained contradiction. A caption under a clown fish photo states that "their bodies are covered with a soft thing called mucus," a definition too vague to be useful. Beth Blaxland's Crabs, Crayfishes, and Their Relatives(Chelsea House, 2002), on a slightly higher reading level, includes lobsters and offers similar information on crustaceans in a more precisely written text. Of the three books, Sea Urchins has the most lucid text and will be a useful resource for reports.-Karey Wehner, formerly at San Francisco Public Libraryα(c) Copyright 2011.
