Habitat Spy - Children's Book Review

Book Synopsis:

Let’s spy on plants, insects, birds, and mammals in 13 different habitats. Told in rhyming narrative, Habitat Spy invites children to search for and find plants, invertebrates, birds, and mammals and more that live in 13 different habitats: backyard, beach, bog, cave, desert, forest, meadow, mountain, ocean, plains, pond, river, and cypress swamp. Children will spend hours looking for and counting all the different plants and animals while learning about what living things need to survive.

My Review:

An educational book for children ages 3 to 8, Habitat Spy is about children looking through binoculars to spy animal habitats.  The story itself is told in rhyme form and tells what different animals do in their habitats.  For instance, readers learn that muskrats snick, squirrels jump, and jellyfish sway.  The illustrations are filled with animals of all species.  In the 'Creative Minds' section of the book, there are educational pages with true and false questions, information about habitats, animal classifications, and the circle of life.

Habitat Spy is a new Spring 2011 title from Sylvan Dell Publishing.
