CAVES by Sally M. Walker, part of the Early Bird Earth Science Series,consists of five chapters. What is a Cave?, Kinds of Caves, Stone Icicles, Animal Life and Exploring a Cave. Near the end of the book, there is an excellent "A Note to Adults" section where the importance of sharing a book with a child is emphasized. My favorite section of the book is Animal Life where fascinating animals are brought to light. Amazing animals who are found in caves like foxes, cave spiders, cave shrimp, snails and glowworms to name a few. "Some cave fish don't even have eyes."-published by Lerner Publications Company.
