Overview

Eminent photographer Art Wolfe's images of moose, cougars, mallards, and sea lions are a wonderful visual aid for children learning to count. Wolfe draws inspiration from his home region, the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, but the crisp photographs of bald eagles, sea otters, scallop shells, and trumpeter swans have a universal appeal. While the images engage young readers, Andrea Helman's short, accessible text introduces the animals with fun facts, so children learn without even realizing it.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-A companion to O Is For Orca: A Pacific Northwest Alphabet Book (Sasquatch Books, 1995). Orca works a bit better, though, because the size of the object(s) photographed is not limited by the number of items that need to be included on each page. It is a bit disconcerting in Moose when six horses dominate three-fourths of the spread and seven pronghorn antelopes are as small as mice when compared to the horses. That aside, the full-color photos are captivating, and children will enjoy peering at each and every one.-Mollie Bynum, formerly at Chester Valley Elementary School, Anchorage, AK
