Synopsis: An interactive book shows a variety of animals--including a red fox, angelfish, polar bear, camel, pelican, and starfish--in their habitats, describing the specific characteristics that suit them to their environments.
From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-A lift-the-flap book designed to acquaint young children with the natural world. On each two-page spread, the left side features text that names an animal, gives a few simple facts about it, and ends with "Where do I live?" The facing flap with a photo of the animal lifts to reveal its habitat and another photo of the animal in it. Aside from a few blurred images, this is a visually appealing book with bright colors used both as page background and as part of the text. Because it is so attractive, it's all the more disappointing that the content doesn't measure up to the design. The terminology used for both the animals and their habitats ranges from general to specific with little continuity. For example, polar bear and emperor penguin refer to particular species while pelican and bee are more general terms that could refer to a number of different species. In the description of the habitats, the bullfrog lives in a pond (a general area) while the polar bear lives in the Arctic (a specific geographic location). The pelican lives on the sea coast-but on all sea coasts? This inconsistency makes the concept confusing. Also, children unfamiliar with terms such as savannah or tropical forest won't know any more after finishing the book; there are no maps, no glossary, or notes.
