Book Review: Habitat Spy
By: Cynthia Kieber-King Illustrated by: Christina Wald
Published by: Sylvan Dell Publishing Date: 2011
Price: $8.95, paperback
Rating: 5 stars
Reviewed by: Kris Quinn Christopherson
Synopsis: 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.
Overall thoughts: Search-and-find books are a favorite in my house and this book was a hit! It is simply a great book to do/read together. Not a traditional listing of subjects you should locate, but the subject was paired with an action verb – I felt this was excellent for enjoyment purposes, and for the educational aspect. The action verbs helped to make an active story time even more entertaining.
