Hodge, Deborah Who Lives Here? Wetland Animals, Illustrated by Pat Stephens. Kids Can Press, 2008. PICTURE BOOK - Language G, Sexual Content G, Violence G – An informational picture book that will be a fine introduction to wetland animals for early elementary students. Each double-page spread includes general text about one of the animals, with a large picture, then adds additional information and smaller pictures featuring some attribute of the animal or its behavior. Realistic detailed illustrations combine with between five and ten facts about each of the nine different animals to create a clear and accessible presentation. All of the information was reviewed for accuracy by the Zoology Department at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver.
