Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The self-consciously wacky Crazy Creature Concepts series of paper-over-board books by Hannah Reidy, illus. by Clare Mackie, turns cartwheels to make learning visually amusing. In Crazy Creature Contrasts, a menagerie of critters, sporting an assortment of bizarre physical traits like curlicue tails, skinny striped legs and silly grins, demonstrates opposites. And a band of the egg-shaped creatures strap skates onto their skinny feet, whizzing up, down, under and through, to teach prepositions in Crazy Creature Capers. More concepts are forthcoming.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3. This fact-filled, visually appealing, one-volume encyclopedia is a stimulating introductory reference tool. The 88 succinct, alphabetically arranged entries are well chosen for the intended audience, and include topics such as books, cars, dinosaurs, insects, and inventions. Handsomely designed full- and double-page spreads, which feature colorful borders, large, clear print, highlighted entry words, and intriguing fact boxes, are devoted to each subject. Profuse, high-quality, full-color illustrations and photos, elucidated by informative captions and labels, complement the lively, authoritative text. Uniquely coded cross-references facilitate readers' search for further relevant material within the logically organized work. A complete table of contents, accessible glossary, and precise index complete the package. Carol Watson's My First Encyclopedia (DK, 1993) also explores concepts that appeal to youngsters. However, the subject coverage is different, as the themes range from a child's daily experiences (e.g., families, pets) to an investigation of the outer world (e.g., deserts, space). Both titles will serve as ideal springboards to more sophisticated encyclopedias.?Hillary Jan Donitz-Goldstein, New York Public Library
