Editorial Reviews

VOYA
These books, Animal Habitats and Animal Life Cycles, are new additions to the Facts on File Science Library. The inaugural volume in the series, Animal Fact File (Facts on File, 1999/VOYA June 2000), was superlative, a high quality, beautifully illustrated compendium of the ninety mammals most likely to be researched by middle and junior high school students. In many respects, the new volumes maintain the standards established by the original. Authored by the same expert, they are packed with colorful maps, photographs, and drawings, and they share the same attractive cost. There is, however, a caveat concerning the indexing of Animal Habitats. As with the other works, it is arranged alphabetically by mammal. Thumbing to the section on jaguars, one is treated to a four-page entry describing in clear and concise terms the environmental characteristics unique to the jaguar's home turf. Two of the four pages are devoted to a focused examination of the Colombian Amazon, a habitat in which the jaguar continues to thrive. All of the mammals covered share this approach—orangutans in the jungle of Borneo, manatees in Florida's Everglades—and entries are uniformly informative. The index, unfortunately, does not include the Colombian Amazon, the jungle of Borneo, Florida's Everglades, or any location. By not listing featured habitats in the index, the book's value as a research tool is diminished. Perhaps this fault is merely a quibble because these books are otherwise solid companions to the immensely useful Animal Fact File. Animal Life Cycles is in fact a lucid reference to the wildly divergent manner in which mammals reproduce. Despite these reservations, these books are worthwhileadditions to a promising series. Nonetheless they simply do not quite measure up to Animal Fact File. Index. Illus. Photos. 2001, Facts on File, 192p, $40. Ages 11 to 15. Reviewer: Randy Brough
