Overview

Children's Press is pleased to introduce True Books for a new generation!

Completely redesigned for today's young, investigative reader, True Books are an indispensable addition to any library or classroom collection. Each book guides the reader through the facts that nurture their need to know. The new, dynamic True Book design features:
-- an inviting and interactive page format
-- a readable and attractive typeface
-- large, bold, and brilliant full-color photographs

True Books cover a virtually limitless range of topics including geographic landmarks, American Indian cultures, animals, computer science, and sports. And that's just the beginning! Continuing a nearly fifty-year tradition, True Books are authoritative introductions to topics children yearn to explore. Each text is reviewed by leading subject and reading consultants.

The True Books series takes the young reader beyond the standard, fact-filled text by adding avenues for further discovery. Each book includes a variety of sidebars, highlighting extra facts that will fascinate children. In the Important Words section, young readers will find a glossary of words that will both challenge and expand their vocabulary. Each book includes a To Find Out More section, where every curious reader can find a list of related books to read and organizations to contact.

True Books also point readers to the vast electronic universe of information on the Internet. Each book will list:
-- e-mail addresses to help the reader contact individuals and organizations
-- appropriate newsgroups and mailing lists
-- FTP sites to download fun and useful software

Begun in the 1950s, True Books are universally embraced bylibrarians, educators, and readers alike as the definitive nonfiction series for young readers. Now in its third incarnation, the True Books series has once again evolved to meet the needs and tastes of modern readers and educators.

Describes six different mammals which live in temperate forests, including squirrels, echidnas, and koalas.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-4Each of these books covers a particular global biome and presents general information and some data on specific members of the widely disparate group of mammals that may inhabit it. Polar Mammals should be titled Arctic Mammals, as the author makes no mention of the seals and whales of the Antarctic. Some of the mammals indexed receive extremely short shrift (wolverines), while others are more fully described (lemmings). Reading the whole gives the impression of a collection of sound bytes that might be more fully enlarged in an encyclopedia article. Mountain Mammals, Temperate Forest Mammals and Tropical Forest Mammals provide longer and more detailed information on fewer animals. This tighter focus makes these titles slightly more useful to children investigating specific animals for reports, or to satisfy personal curiosity. In all of the titles, the authors' constant habit of breaking compound sentences into simple ones by adding a period and capitalizing "And" or "But" is annoying. Still, the series is useful as a broad picture, or as a jumping-off place for further research. The books offered for further reading are current and readable, though some are above the "True Book" level. Colorful additions that may fill a gap.Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
