Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Each book in the "Welcome to the World of Animals" series describes the animal in terms of wonder at what it can do and how it functions in its environment. Short chapters tell where the animals can be found, what they eat, how they communicate, what babies are like, and how they spend time. The book helpfully reminds readers that there are about 260 kinds of squirrels (including ground squirrels, prairie dogs, and chipmunks) in the worldwide family with only about 9 main kinds of tree squirrels in North America. A report writer would easily locate habitats and other relevant features, given the functional index and glossary of this 32-page book. Sidebars and well-captioned photographs are interesting and inviting to read as is the friendly and well-organized text. 2003 (orig. 2001), Gareth Stevens,
