"The Animal Wise series explores animal patterns, behaviors, habitats, colors, and shapes. Colorful digital illustrations accentuate animal adaptations. These books support content standards while they encourage students to stretch their informational reading skills. Each topic is introduced in the same way. An animal is introduced, an adaptation is described, and a unique attribute is portrayed. The structure of the text is easy to read for beginners, yet contains plenty of information for intermediate elementary readers. Pointy, Long, or Round investigates animal shape adaptations. Children discover that a porcupine’s sharp quills frighten predators and a leafy sea dragon uses its body shape as camouflage amidst the seaweed. Nine shape adaptations, from the giraffe to the mongoose, are described. Each book in the Animal Wise series closes with three questions about the animals. Children may respond by pointing to an illustration, making this an excellent read-aloud for primary students. "Fun Facts," a glossary, Internet resources, and additional books are also included for further information or research. The array of adaptations presented in these colorful books will capture students’ attention and spark interest in a variety of animals." - NSTA Recommends
