Review: 'Beneath the Sun' by Melissa Stewart

Beneath the Sun by Melissa Stewart, Illustrated by Constance R Bergum, 2014, Peachtree, $16.95, hardbound, 31 pages. Category/Genre: reference. Cover: terrific. Where we got it: publisher. Where you can get it: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million.  

This book is all about how wild animals cope with the summer sun. Animals are shown in fields, in the desert, in wetlands, on seashores, and even underground and underwater.

Constance R Bergum's beautiful illustrations punctuate the text and bring to life the many creatures mentioned. Stewart chose a wide variety of animals, from a woodchuck to a black swallowtail caterpillar to a male osprey and fiddler crabs. 

Both children and adults will enjoy learning about the kinds of methods animals have for dealing with the sun. For preschool up to third grade readers.
