Gr. 1-4. A new addition to the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out series, this book explains how some bath sponges are actually the skeletons of animals that have been harvested by divers from the ocean floor. Typical of the highly regarded series, the presentation is both lively and informative. "Sploosh! Splash! Dribble! Time to squeeze a skeleton." 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 ("No two living sponges are ever exactly the same shape.") while at the same time promoting their harvest for use as bath sponges ("A sponge is especially good for washing because it holds more water than a washcloth. . . . The sponges die and their skins rot. The smell is terrible--whew!"). Otherwise, this book is a very child-friendly examination of an interesting creature and its use by humans. Annie Ayres
