Booklist Review

Gr. 3^-6. Books in the Nature Watch series offer children colorful and informative introductions to various animals: their life cycles, distinctive physical features and behaviors, and chances for survival. North American Cranes introduces the sandhill crane and the whooping crane. The text describes their distinctive features and their migrations as well as the extensive efforts of conservationists to save the species. Sea Horses discusses the mythology, classification, and unusual characteristics of the fish as well as their bonding rituals and male pregnancy. Illustrated with many excellent, full-color photos, the books will be useful in school and public libraries. --Carolyn Phelan
