Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jamie Hain
The Alaskan brown bear is a giant animal found in Canada as well as Alaska. This highly informative book gives readers an in-depth introduction into the life of an Alaskan brown bear as it looks for food and prepares for a long winter of hibernating. Bright colorful pages filled with photographs of the brown bear in action illustrate the brown bear's lifestyle and habits. Featuring a map of the brown bear's range and a diagram labeling its various body parts, this book provides readers with a detailed overview of the brown bear. Like all books in the "Animal Close-Ups" series in the "Lightning Bolt Books" collection, this book contains a glossary of bear related terms, a quick reference index, and a guide to print and online sources of further reading about brown bears. This sturdy book would make a great addition to elementary school libraries or other collections serving young children with a nature or animal focused curriculum. Reviewer: Jamie Hain
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2–These easy readers introduce distinctly different animals (some, such as pigeons, prairie dogs, and bats, are united in their “perceived pest” status) in a fun way. Fresh photography, a creative use of graphics, and a collagelike layout make them eye-catching. Interactive text (“Why are all these bats upside down?”) and a “Fun Facts” page in Bats, Pigeons, and Snails will engage readers. Each book ends with a labeled diagram of the animal, a range map, and a further-reading list that includes print and online resources in a single list, a nice way of validating both types of materials.
