Unique Animals of the Southeast

by Lee Jacobs, Tanya Stone
 

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 2-5-Each volume introduces approximately a dozen animals found in a designated geographical area. Stone provides basic information about the animals' physical characteristics, food sources, habitat, and behavior. With only a page or two per animal, not every topic can be addressed for each one. There is also no attempt to relate species to one another. The writing is clear, and the well-designed pages feature photographs that reinforce the written information. However, organizing this series around groups of states rather than habitat sets up an artificial structure that works better in some cases than in others. Stone can identify enough unique animals in Alaska and Hawaii to distinguish those states from most other locations, but the Midwest includes many animals that are common in wide areas of North America. For example, deer, cardinals, and ground squirrels can be found in many other regions. With so many books available about individual animals or states, the choices for the further-reading lists are curious. About half of the titles are also published by Blackbirch, several by this author. Libraries may want to purchase the volume that covers their state. Other titles could be considered for purchase where heavy demand for report material warrants.-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
