Gr 4–6—An updated take on "Nature's Children" with new authors, new text, and, with just a few exceptions, different photographs. In each book, a "Fact File" spread introduces the animal group, leading into a cogent, well-organized treatment of physical features, behavior, and life cycles. A balanced combination of general content and specific examples works effectively, with data relevant to individual species clearly noted. Later chapters touch on history and related species. All of these animals are vulnerable or threatened; a closing chapter looks at survival challenges and includes examples of recent and current rescue efforts. Most photographs are single images, about a full page in size, which complement the text well, sometimes expanding the information with captions.
VERDICT First-rate animal profiles for upper grade elementary students.
