Ubiquitous by Joyce Sidman

Sidman, Joyce  Ubiquitous, illustrated by Beckie Prang.  40 pages.  Houghton Mifflin Books, 2010. $17.00. Language-G; Sexual Content –G; Violence- G; The definition of Ubiquitous (yoo-bik-wi-tuhs): Something that is (or seems to be) everywhere at the same time. This is an interesting factual book about how some life forms on earth become extinct and others survive.  Not only do they survive, but how do they survive in many places: in deserts, in ice, in lakes, inside houses and forests?  How do they become ubiquitous? We learn about beetles, sharks, geckos, and much more!  My 11 year old son loved this book!  We are always looking for great factual books about reptiles, mammals, insects, etc.  This book is a must in every library and has a wide range of application in the classroom. EL-ESSENTIAL. Reviewer: SL
