Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
There are five members of the deer family: elk, moose, mule deer, white-tailed deer and caribou. We see where they live, learn why they migrate and what kinds of food they eat. Baby deer are left alone for two weeks after they are born, being scentless, they are safer alone than with their mothers. The mothers watch from a distance and come back to feed the babies often. Interesting deer facts are included as sidebars. One such interesting tidbit is that in less than one week a baby deer can run faster than a human. Each spread covers a pertinent area of interest and all are beautifully documented with animals, habitats, maps and even footprints. This is a beautifully illustrated reference book about the deer family, suitable for the young children.
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4--Two books in a series aimed at introducing young readers to the habitats and lifestyles of various members of the animal kingdom. Each double-page chapter provides general information and boxed insets that give additional facts, e.g., "A beaver family cuts down hundreds of trees a year." The texts are simple enough for newly independent readers to handle with little difficulty. The information is fairly general, but it's sufficient for short reports. Full-page drawings clearly illustrate their subjects. Of the two books, Beavers is slightly more successful, mainly because it focuses on one animal and thus can provide more detail. Deer, on the other hand, is a bit sketchy because it tries to cover several animals, devoting little space to each of them. The "New True" books (Children's) have slightly easier to read texts and photos that are not always as clear as the drawings featured in these books. Serviceable additions.--Arwen Marshall, New York Public Library
