Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
The cover provides readers with a face-to-face greeting by this sleek and furry African animal. The color photographs in each layout are close-up shots of the meerkats in their surroundings. The text begins with a brief description about the animal's habitat and includes a simple world map and a map of Africa to assist readers in understanding the region where meerkat mobs are found. There is basic information about how this mammal survives. The close-up snapshots show the creature digging for food and clenching its prey. There is a description on how the meerkats work together to protect the pups and the mob from predators. A glossary and an index are provided, as is a list of a few book titles for further information about the meerkats. The book code for the FactHound Internet site offers additional sites to visit. This book is part of the "African Animals" series; the animal information is presented in a similar format as is used in the rest of the books in this series. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
