Booklist Review

Gr. 3^-6. From the Nature Watch Book series, these volumes offer readers information and plenty of full-color photographs. Although many libraries may already have Stone's 1997 book Cougars (in Lerner's Early Bird Nature Books series), the new volume has a longer text, written for older readers and printed in smaller type. Like the other volume, the new volume includes discussions of habitat, hunting, kittens, and cougars and people, but it has more information, and most of the photos are new. In Dolphins, Walker discusses the animal's physical characteristics, intelligence, communication, behavior, life cycle, and relations with people. Captioned photos illustrate the text. Two attractive volumes in a dependable series. --Carolyn Phelan


School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-4‘These strong series entries have clean, simple texts and provide lots of opportunities for interaction between adults and children. Stone begins each title with a clear, attractive map that shows the animals' habitats in North America, and with a list of words (later identified in the brief glossary) for readers to look for and to figure out from context. The full-color photographs are informative and crisp (especially in Cougars); captions are relevant and occasionally pose questions that are then answered in the texts. The books cover the basics about cougars and swans, setting them in the context of their animal families and in the world, describing their physical characteristics, habitats, and lifestyles, and pointing out the ways in which they interact with humans. The "Note to Adults" at the end offers interesting activities for extending the reading experience. Excellent additions to natural history collections.‘Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough Public Library System, FL (c) Copyright 2010.
