Booklist Review

Gr. 3^-5. These volumes from the Wildlife Conservation Society Books series take a distinctly personal approach to the presentation of an animal species. Each book begins with an illustrated, four-page biographical and professional introduction to the author, as well as information about how he or she came to write the book. Colorful maps show where the animals were studied. In Whale, biologist Collard shows how John Calambokidis' observations of humpback and blue whales off the Pacific coast of North America have contributed to our knowledge of their numbers, migration patterns, and behaviors. The book clearly presents not just Calambokidis' approach to research but also his passion for his work and courage in studying whales at sea. Chipmunk focuses on a particular mother chipmunk and how she raises her brood. It takes place in author Bastian's New Jersey backyard, where she has observed, researched, and photographed her neighborhood chipmunks for more than 25 years. Her curiosity and her quiet, methodical observations will surely inspire young readers to look more closely at the wild animals around them. Each book is illustrated with many clear, colorful photos. Appendixes include glossaries, bibliographies, and lists of related organizations and online sites. --Carolyn Phelan
