Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-6 A brief text describes the activi ties of Wildlife Rescue, a volunteer group near Big Rapids, Mich., that cares for in jured and orphaned wildlife. Especially in spiring is the large part that children play in these rehabilitation efforts. Unfortunately, an unattractive and cluttered for mat, coupled with black-and-white photo graphs of variable quality, may discourage readers who would find some useful infor mation here. The authors fluctuate be tween addressing readers new to the sub ject and those who have some familiarity with it; the text contains a peculiar mix ture of vaguely defined and sometimes italicized scientific terms such as electro lites and hypothermic and cute expres sions, such as bunnies. Other words in the text (only, for example) are confusingly italicized merely for emphasis. There is nothing else available at this reading and interest level about volunteer wildlife res cue organizations. Older readers are bet ter served by Curtis' All Wild Creatures Welcome (Lodestar, 1985), a compassion ate look at a New York rehabilitation cen ter or by Weber's Wild Orphan Babies (Holt, 1978) for more detailed instructions about rescuing abandoned animals.
