Reviews

Gr 1-4-Listeners/readers follow a troop of ring tailed lemurs during their daily activities. Giant coua birds, a radiated tortoise, brown lemurs, shifakas, a harrier hawk, and a chameleon are introduced. They sunbathe, drink rainwater from empty snail shells, groom one another, eat sweet tamarind pods, play with each other, have a stink fight for territory, and search for a place to bed down for the night. The book by Deborah Dennard is narrated by the soothing female voice of Randye Kaye. The clear narration is accompanied by forest sounds of animals and insects. The cassette follows the book precisely throughout the story and the information page at the end. However, the book also includes a map and illustrated glossary of animals. Listeners learn about Madagascar's fragile habitat and its diverse flora and fauna. Classes studying Africa or habitats can use this in whole group settings. Individuals will also enjoy checking it out from the library.-Lisa Radmer, North Bend Elementary School, WA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
