Gr 2-4-Each title presents basic information on the animals' physical characteristics, habitat, family life, diet, and predators. Labeled diagrams of their primary body parts are included, along with maps showing their habitats. Framed "Did You Know?" boxes are accompanied by full-color photographs, and the pictures on the "Family Life" page have a scrapbook look. A time line written from the perspective of the animal gives readers a sense of its daily activities. Information in each title is delivered in a kid-friendly, magazinelike format, with several boxes of text and photos per spread. The material presented is not sufficient for reports, but the books might serve as introductions to these creatures or inspire an interest in wildlife.-Cathie Bashaw Morton, Somers Library, NY Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
