Series Review
These high-quality resources offer thorough coverage of each animal in an appealing, accessible format. Physical features, behaviors, feeding habits, and life cycles are described in clear, direct language. Key facts and figures flow smoothly within the narratives, and differences between individual species are carefully noted whenever applicable. Fascinating examples of behaviors such as kangaroo cooling strategies and the swimming techniques of armadillos provide engaging details in ways that readers will remember. Most photographs are a full page or larger and successfully depict highlighted features, behaviors, or species varieties. Additional visual support includes a distribution map, size comparisons, a full-page photo with key body parts labeled, and a family tree showing related species. Though some animals have been covered in previous editions of this series, all content is completely new. Top-notch animal profiles for report writers and browsers.
