Summary
Imagine a herd of elephants all talking to each other. How do they do it? What do they tell each other? Readers will learn a lot about elephants, habitats, animal communication, and much more. With their curiosity piqued, readers then zigzag to other questions: what if elephants lived in a different environment? How do other creatures communicate?

Review
  • (The following is a combined review for A Den Is a Bed for a Bear; Every Planet Has a Place; What Did One Elephant Say to the Other?; and Your Skin Holds You In) K-Gr 2– These books present factual, clearly-written information on their featured subjects. Readers’ curiosity will be piqued by the vibrant color photographs, accommodating illustrations, large font size, and helpful captions. Special features include drawings superimposed over photographs, and a “zigzag” path at the end of each book prompting readers to further explore the topic in new and fun ways, such as building a bear den, imagining what Earth would look like from Venus, explaining what could be done with a trunk instead of a nose, and coloring fingertips with markers to examine a colored fingerprint. This series will be a welcome addition in libraries that do not have “The Space Explorer,” “Nature’s Patterns,” “Look After Yourself,” “Zoo Animals,” and “Creature Comparisons” series (all Heinemann). These new treatments should draw diverse readers and support elementary curricula.–Cara Moffett, Freelance Reviewer --Cara Moffett (Reviewed November 1, 2008) (School Library Journal, vol 54, issue 11, p26)
  • This appealing young-readers' introduction to skin is illustrated with photographs of children and adults of many races, overlaid with drawings and labels to show relevant details. Beginning with the idea that skin color comes from melanin, Baines goes on to describe how skin helps to regulate body temperature, the existence of pores, hair and freckles, its healing and stretching properties, physical makeup and utility. The final double-page spread suggests such interesting ideas for further exploration as, "What's on the other side of your belly button?" or, "Does a feather feel the same on your nose as on your elbow?" The zigzag presentation of these follow-up questions provides the name for this new series, which will include books on a variety of science subjects. The lively design and small trim size invite early readers, but the difficulty of some words and lack of glossary may require them to seek an adult's help at first.
