Review by Luella Sumner.
Today Daniel is going on a hike. This is Amy. Amy is a naturalist. She's going to be Daniel's guide. ........................ Look high and low - lots of insects like dark hiding spots. Turn over a rock and you might find beetles, a worm or ants. Ants like to make their nests underground. They dig tunnels and small rooms to lay their eggs in.
Daniel Cook is a small boy who is the hero of books and a TV spot on the Treehouse channel. All the illustrations are photographs, some of Daniel, some of bugs, plants, birds, etc. The text consists of simple descriptions and directions, such as a check list of what equipment to take on a hike and short paragraphs about insects and animals. At the end of the book, there is a recipe for granola snacks to bring along on your hike. All the information given is very general, basic and simple enough for a small child to understand.
Young children will understand and be interested in the illustrations and information provided.
Luella Sumner, of Red Rock, ON, is a retired librarian.
