Children's Literature
Young nature lovers will enjoy this new fact-filled chapter book from the "Predators in the Wild" series. Fascinating text accompanies the vivid and dramatic color photographs of grizzly bears. Readers will discover physical characteristics of these great mammals, mating habits and facts about their cute and cuddly cubs. The hunting practices, diet, importance of the grizzly's senses and how they use their teeth and claws for their survival are revealed. The profound effect of people on this magnificent species is discussed along with how to prevent attacks when camping and in the wild. Readers will be glad to know they can play a role in the survival of this great animal that shares our planet. A complete glossary aids the reader's understanding. Resources to learn more and useful addresses for those seeking more information are included. Internet sites are also given for the computer-savvy reader. This is a useful resource for the home and intermediate classroom libraries. 2002, Capstone Press, $21.26. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Sue Reichard AGES: 8 9 10 11 12

Gr 3-5-These series entries look at aspects of the creatures' lives, including where they live, what they eat, and what efforts are being made to conserve their habitats. A "Fast Facts" section at the beginning of each book offers basic information (e.g., height, weight, prey, etc.), and further details are provided in the four chapters that follow. Each chapter begins with a three-sentence summation, which seems a bit extraneous given that they are only about five pages long. The small blocks of simple text amid lots of white space add to a user-friendly appearance, and the color photos on every page do an adequate job, although in a few cases they seem to be oddly placed. For example, in each book, the full-page photo of some favorite foods isn't next to the main explanatory text on the subject. Still, these titles offer good, although not in-depth, information, and will appeal both to browsers and to those seeking material for brief reports. Serviceable additions, especially where easy-to-read nonfiction is in high demand.-Arwen Marshall, formerly at New York Public Library Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
