From the Publisher
"Leaves readers with the notions that there are actions they can personally take to conserve the environment and that science is not something one reads about, but rather something one does." —Booklist
Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
Wolves around the world are endangered. The National Geographic Society is actively involved in trying to save them and getting kids involved in the process. Step one, educating about wolves, is a major objective of this publication. Wolves have a long and complicated history with human being. They are neither super heroes nor villains; they are wild animals that play a role in their local environments. Many scientists have been studying wolves for a long time. Dr. Dan MacNulty is one such scientist. He has been conducting research and filming wolves in Yellowstone National Park. He studies the Druids, one of the largest wolf packs at the park, to learn more about them. Black Wolf is an outsider to this pack but wants to mate with one of the females. Scientists tagged Black Wolf so they could study him more carefully. Wolves have a wide range of native habitat in the Northern Hemisphere. They are the largest canines in the world, weighing between 65 and 140 pounds. Rescue activities that appeal to kids are included in the book. A wide variety of suggested activities are presented to help kids learn more about wolves. For example, pretend you are a wolf and make a den to protect your pups. Make a wolf mask and howl like a wolf. This is a comprehensive look at wolves, their habitats, and how humans can help them survive. As one would expect from this publisher, outstanding photographs illustrate this volume. Reviewer: Kristin Harris; Ages 8 up.
