School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 3-5-These broad overviews are suitable for browsing from cover to cover, or used chapter by chapter. Bredeson covers topics ranging from "Mysteries of Migration" to chapters on fish, birds, reptiles and amphibians, mammals, and insects. Perry explores the various types of animals that hibernate, as well as where, including the differences between burrows, dens, caves and crevices, and in the mud. Words appearing in boldface throughout the text alert readers to glossary entries, while beautiful photographs and captions highlight the various animals being discussed. Notes on sources explain how and where the authors gathered their information. While many books exist about the various animals mentioned, these succinct titles will not hibernate on the shelves for long.-Cathie E.
