Booklist Review

Gr. 5^-8. WorldLife Library series titles are notable for their spectacular full-color photography and commitment to environmental awareness and conservation. Eagles details the history, physical characteristics, and behavior of many of the 60 species; how they became revered figures of myth and legend; and the threats to their existence. Inexplicably, many pages lack numbers, making it difficult to access the valuable wealth of material through the contents page and index; small print, dense, academic text, and challenging vocabulary make this comprehensive book a better choice for older readers. Porpoises describes the elusive creatures in lively, accessible prose, and easy-to-read larger print. Read explains the traits and physical characteristics of six identified species; how porpoises differ from dolphins; and special scientific methods devised for their study. The book focuses on conservation challenges and threats to porpoises' survival, such as fishing nets. Including reading lists, these titles are recommended for their depth of information; the abundance of fascinating action and still photographs provide an excellent visual resource for educators and wildlife buffs of all ages. See the Series Roundup, this issue, for a book on puffins. --Shelle Rosenfeld
