Overview

Another informative, appealing book in the series, this one is about the smallest American elk, at one time almost extinct. Arnold describes the elks' life span, habitat, food, enemies , and reproduction. The large, full-color photographs extend and clarify the text, such as pictures of the elk during mating season and of one hiding a new - born elk in the grass. This book concentrates on the one kind of elk and has more illustrations than Ahlstrom's The Elk (Crestwood, 1985), but, as much of the information is the same, purchase will depend the need for information on elk. For libraries that don't have the Ahlstrom book, Arnold's is by far the superior choice. --Margaret C. Howell, West Springfield Elem . Sch . , VA
