Booklist Review

Gr. 2-4. Catering expertly to assignment-driven students, this entry in the Perspectives: Habitat Explorer series combines bright, relevant color photos and graphics with easily digestible texts, supplemented by checklists of common flora, fauna, important points to remember, and the like. Focusing primarily on the Great Barrier Reef, the text emphasizes the diversity of life found there and on reefs in general, and closes with cautionary notes on how reefs are damaged or threatened by human activity. Helpful back matter includes several recent, related titles and a Web site. Visually appealing, logically organized, and presenting a well-tuned mix of general observations supported by specific examples, this is a worthy addition to natural science collections. --John Peters Copyright 2004 Booklist
