Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA-- Two guides sure to satisfy the curiosity of novices and inspire a deeper interest in nature. These attractive paperbacks fit easily in the pocket or backpack for handy access. The selections, grouped geographically and by habitat, are limited to those most commonly discovered by hikers or beachcombers. The clear, full-color pictures are simply labeled for easy identification. Advice on how to catch and keep live specimens for closer examination is punctuated with concern for the environment and the admonishment to return captives to their natural habitats.
