Review by Booklist Reviews

Books in the A Day in the Life series (3 titles) tell of several different animals' activities and characteristics within the framework of a single day. Short sections of narrative, which follow particular creatures at a certain time, are bolstered by factual sections that comment on topics such as the animals' senses, special abilities, and notable physical attributes. To create dramatic tension, the writing sometimes plays up the creatures' predatory actions, but it discusses their other activities and physical characteristics as well. The 11:00 p.m. spread in Sharks introduces a cookiecutter shark. Small, nocturnal, and luminescent, he attracts a nearby dolphin, bites into its flank, and escapes unharmed. From action scenes to tidbits of intriguing information to paragraphs of explanation, the text has plenty to offer animal lovers. Varied in layout, these fully illustrated books feature vibrant, stylized artwork with distinctive palettes. An attractive series for kids intrigued by animals in the wild. Grades 2-4.
