School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 1-3-Each volume provides a basic introduction to the title animal, including its physical features, habitat, food, daily life, dangers from predators, and similar topics. A world map indicates where the animals live, and a "Tracker's Guide" offers captioned photos of tracks, droppings, and other signs. The straightforward texts are accompanied by full-color photographs in an uncluttered layout. These titles are for a younger audience than those in the "Animal Groups" series (Heinemann Library) and are comparable to "The World of Mammals" titles (The Child's World) and the "Early Bird Nature Books" (Lerner). Acceptable choices where additional materials about one or more of the animals featured are needed.-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
