Caroline Arnold is the award-winning author of more than one hundred and forty books for children, including WIGGLE AND WAGGLE, A WARMER WORLD, and TOO HOT? TOO COLD?: KEEPING BODY TEMPERATURE JUST RIGHT. She lives in Los Angles, California.From School Library Journal:
Gr 3-5-Arnold begins this simple introduction to creatures with "a super sense of hearing" with a very brief explanation of the measured range of sound. An interesting chart compares the range heard by elephants, dogs, humans, and bats. The body of the work features double-page topical spreads, each with two or three paragraphs of text across broad, full-color illustrations. Bats, with their well-known use of echolocation, get a bit more coverage than other creatures, but insects, rodents, a few birds, dolphins, and even the rhinoceros are considered. Most spreads also incorporate a small framed box with an illustrated fact. The varied, often bold color tones used as backgrounds in the artwork seem to separate rather than unite the spreads, though the animals depicted are realistic and sometimes intriguing. The book should be useful in science classes, and the presentation encourages some reflective thinking.
