Tree Kangaroos

Tree Kangaroos

by Chuck Miller

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This entry in the "Animals of the Rainforest" series includes information about how the tree kangaroos survive in the rainforests of northern Australia and Papua New Guinea, their future in the rainforest, a map where it is located, charts, and sidebars of interesting facts. A short chapter is devoted to what tree kangaroos eat, the animal's life cycle, unique features of these animals, and their role in the rainforest ecology. Scientists think there are only about two thousand of these endangered animals left in the world. Research is further supported by a labeled picture with page references to the animal's unique features, a glossary, well-selected and vibrantly colored photographs but with modest mostly descriptive rather than informative captions. Included are an index, a few Internet sites and other children's reference books, and a useful address to which to write. 2001, Steck-Vaughn,
