Platypus is packed full of interesting information about a very strange animal, but the book never feels like an informational text The rich lyrical descriptions of the animal and habitat are accompanied by sidebars providing scientific details The platypus s world comes alive in the illustrations and language as the author slowly reveals the features of this puzzling creature and follows it through its day Several other Nature Storybooks are available in the series as well.

This is like a wonderful nature program on TV with a narrator doing voice over Love the information The watercolor art totally fits the odd character and setting My only nitpick is that I wish the two fonts were distinct For leveled text, they are too similar Other than that, wow The verbs The voice Fabulous Night settles in Frogs croon to the starry sky Thirsty wallabies appear at the creek edge to drink Under the cover of darkness, Platypus rides the current, performs back flips, rolls over a [...]

This book is illustrated with painterly, realistic art in muted tones The narrative follows a platypus as he moves about his environment, defining words and focusing on his unusual attributes The tone is comfortable, easy to read and understand An interesting introduction to the platypus for elementary age.

Narrative text tells the story of a day in the life of a male platypus The female is mentioned briefly, but also in the backmatter.Other than the backmatter, on only the page with the wallabies do we get a hint of which continent the platypus lives on.Wide spreads on slightly over sized pages show the animal s activities in greenish brown tones.

Great format for 1 3 grade nonfiction readers Describes a day in the life of the platypus, accompanied by short text facts related to the narrative on each page Criticism Don t tell readers to look up the words from the index in a dictionary include a glossary for them.

I tried to read this to my daughter but she was definitely NOT interested So I finished reading the book myself The information in this book is interesting but I was not fond of the illustrations This book would be best suited for school age children.
