PreS-Gr 1-While these are serviceable introductions to popular animals, there is nothing about the volumes that stands out. Each spread includes a photograph and one or two sentences. The scope of coverage is inconsistent: while most of the titles address the animal's diet, physical description, and a bit about daily life, Horses focuses largely on physical attributes and horseback riding, and does not mention diet at all. The picture glossaries in all the books show close-ups of two or three images. The included words are not necessarily the most important; they are the ones that photograph most easily. Rourke's "Farm Animals" (2011) offers a more engaging and even introduction to farm animals and life. (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
