Summary

Summary

We all recognize an elephant or a bear when we see one. But how much do we really know about these incredible animals? This lively series takes young readers to the heart of the jungle, across the plains and out to sea to explore the lives of these wildlife stars. Each volume examines the anatomy and special skills of its subject as well as its habitats, diets and hunting strategies. Remarkable insights into family and social interactions and compelling discussions about the often precarious future faced by each animal round out each volume. Written with flair, each easy-to-read title includes a variety of fact boxes and sidebars containing fascinating observations and fun trivia.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-5-These fact-filled books will delight readers. Jango-Cohen covers the featured animals' discovery, how they were given their scientific name, their habitat, food consumption, mating, variety of species, and survival in nature. Both good and bad human interactions are explained in the last chapters. Helpful glossaries and sources of additional information through books, videos, and Web sites are included. Large, captioned color photos are eye-catching and depict the species in their natural habitats. The map in Penguins is potentially confusing since it's drawn from the vantage point of the South Pole and only shows the lower segments of South America, Africa, and Australia. Nonetheless, these colorful titles will be a hit with animal lovers and report writers.-Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
