Gr 3-6-These beautifully crafted books present information in a lively, readable manner. The excellent-quality, candid full-color photographs show the featured animals in their natural habitats and are closely matched to the texts. While including all the facts necessary for reports, these titles also tell a compelling story of where the animals live and why, how they raise their young, and what they need to survive. Diagrams of their skeletons show how their bodies suit their environment or their hunting methods. In Cheetahs and Rhinoceroses, there is also a strong undercurrent of warning that the animals are endangered and becoming extinct in many areas. Folklore and history about them are also included. These visually appealing titles are useful as well as delightful to read.-Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
