About this title


Examines the animals and plants of the Sonoran Desert, inhabited by hawks, lizards, and jackrabbits and their relationship with one another and their environment

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Information on the Sonoran desert is presented in a cumulative fashion a la The House That Jack Built, e.g., "Here is the lizard/who is spied by the hawk/that perches on the cactus/that is covered with spines..." The narrative mentions and depicts eight animals and three plants; an end note shows these and other creatures in pen-and-ink drawings with a brief discussion of them and their environment. The book is beautifully designed. On each double-page spread, text appears in a narrow section on the left against a glowing earth-pink background; remaining space is filled with an acrylic painting saturated with dazzling desert light. Each spread is marked with solid borders, as though matted. Coe's dry-brush technique reveals the texture of the canvas in ways that make it look like grainy sand. One cavil: the obviously different prickly pear and saguaro are called by the same generic name-cactus.
