K-Gr 2-A few days in the life of a seahorse in the Danajon Bank in the Philippines are the focus of this nature study. The seahorse, his mate, and the other creatures of the reef are portrayed in bright, realistic paintings that capture the colorful underwater world. The text identifies the animals and describes their behaviors. Mating and birth, protective coloration, and predators and prey are all addressed. Although there is no index, the book is potentially useful for research. The text is smooth enough to sread aloud or alone in one sitting. An endnote tells of the devastation of the seahorse population and the efforts being made for its preservation.-Ellen Heath, Orchard School, Ridgewood, NJ Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
