Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
This book is part of the "Animal Close-up" series from Charlesbridge. The photographs alone would make me plunk down my $6.95 for it. Text and photos explore the lives of sea lions in the most intriguing of habitats, the Galapagos Islands. The reader is drawn into the lives of these great mammals, learning of their curiosity, their unbelievable grace underwater, the tremendous depths to which they seem to dive. Additional information is offered on threats to their safety and lives, protection measure being taken, and some data on the seal family to which sea lions belong.
