Children's LiteratureStriking photographs, colorful illustrations, and an interesting layout will keep readers' eyes glued to the pages of this educational book about wolves. When they are finished, readers will come away with a renewed curiosity about this beautiful creature that must be protected to prevent extinction. This book covers wolves' habitats, their status as endangered, what they eat, and how humans are helping wolves. But it does not sugarcoat the existence of wolves, for it also covers the dark side of wolves' lives, which includes being hunted by farmers and hunters who consider them a nuisance or a threat, and use cruel traps to capture them. Readers will also learn the truth about the common misconception that wolves are dangerous to people, when in reality they are more likely to avoid any human contact than to attack. A glossary, index, and list of websites with more wolf information are included. This title is part of the "Earth's Endangered Animal Species" series. 2005, Crabtree Publishing Company, and Ages 7 to 10.
