Sponges Are Skeletons

Book Review From BOOKLIST

"Typical of [this] highly regarded series, the presentation is both lively and informative. . . . The text is simple and thought provoking, and the illustrations are bright and animated. Esbensen does strike a somewhat jarring, if realistic, note by stressing that sponges are beautiful living animals. . .while at the same time promoting their harvest for use as bath sponges. . . . Otherwise, this book is a very child-friendly examination of an interesting creature and its use by humans." -- Annie Ayres
