School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-5-These series entries look at aspects of the creatures' lives, including where they live, what they eat, and what efforts are being made to conserve their habitats. A "Fast Facts" section at the beginning of each book offers basic information (e.g., height, weight, prey, etc.), and further details are provided in the four chapters that follow. Each chapter begins with a three-sentence summation, which seems a bit extraneous given that they are only about five pages long. The small blocks of simple text amid lots of white space add to a user-friendly appearance, and the color photos on every page do an adequate job, although in a few cases they seem to be oddly placed. For example, in each book, the full-page photo of some favorite foods isn't next to the main explanatory text on the subject. Still, these titles offer good, although not in-depth, information, and will appeal both to browsers and to those seeking material for brief reports. Serviceable additions, especially where easy-to-read nonfiction is in high demand.-Arwen Marshall, formerly at New York Public Library (c) Copyright 2010.
