Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Annie Laura Smith
The author, a wildlife biologist, brings Alaskan wildlife to life through the eyes of Benjamin and Lucy Baxter whose parents take them to Alaska for a week on their mother's scientific research project. Their adventures in Alaska illustrate that no matter where you live, you can have fun discovering the plants, animals, and natural life around you. Jeff Corwin's knowledge of biology and engaging writing show young readers how to learn more about their environment wherever they may be. Corwin demonstrates through Benjamin that wildlife can be found even on the grounds of the college campus where their mother works. After they start exploring in Alaska, the children discover climate change there can affect the climate globally. The first book in the "Junior Explorer Series" is Your Backyard Is Wild! The Great Alaska Adventure! is the second book and The Wild, Wild Southwest! is the third book. The adventures of Benjamin and Lucy bring awareness to how important it is to take care of our environment with scientific facts from a conservationist perspective woven seamlessly into their adventures.
