Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amy McMillan
Crocodiles and alligators have been feared, worshiped, and hunted (and often all three at the same time!) These great reptiles have fascinated mankind for centuries and this book helps show readers why. The table of contents delineates within each two-page spread the specific subjects highlighted by large, full-color photos, short paragraphs of important information, and off-set text boxes sharing complementary fun facts and details. Specific vocabulary words are bolded throughout the text and defined in the glossary in the back. Some of the topics covered include conservation efforts, habitats, physical characteristics, hunting tactics, human interactions as well as variations and similarities between the species and information about evolution and their ancient dinosaur ancestry. There are some basic facts missing so this book will not serve as a complete resource but it is a great supplement for those wanting to focus primarily on the predatory nature of the animals. In addition to the glossary the back matter contains an index and further on-line information. Part of the "Amazing Animal Hunters" series, this installment is sure to appeal to animal lovers and boys in particular. Reviewer: Amy McMillan
Children's Literature - Judy Crowder
Young readers everywhere have seen bottlenose dolphins in books or documentaries. Some children are lucky enough to see them in person, at an aquarium or at the beach. With their seemingly playful behavior, bottlenose dolphins are appealing creatures. But what about their life cycle, birth through adulthood, when they produce young of their own? Where do they live in the world's oceans and what do they eat? Are they solitary or do they live in groups? This book, part of the "Life Cycles of Marine Animals" series, does a fine job of answering these questions and more. Using colorful illustrations and charts, plus finely-written text, the author begins with the fundamental questions: what do these marine mammals look like? How do they compare, size-wise, to other dolphin types or whales? The book details the bottlenose dolphin's life cycle while including a good foundation of facts, including its physical features and how these enable dolphins to be successful hunters, social behavior, habitat, plus whatever challenges and dangers these marine mammals might encounter. Bottlenose dolphins face many threats from natural predators—killer whales and sharks—as well as human threats: pollution, noise pollution, fishing and habitat destruction. As with other books in this series, it concludes with how young readers can help protect these marine mammals. The book includes a glossary of words printed in bold throughout the book and index.
