Series Review
Each title in this series follows an animal or a group in search of a new habitat. The present tense narrative describes the journeys, most of which include a bit of danger and some promising, but ultimately unsuitable possibilities, until the ideal site is finally located. The bumblebee scout, for example, encounters a neighborhood without flowers, a landscaper’s pesticides, and a human who fears bees, then discovers a garden that fits perfectly. Some of the animals come across humans who are helping the environment, including scientists and habitat restorers. Appealing illustrations use a simple cartoon style to infuse a bit of personality into the animals without going too far. Animal and plant features are represented accurately. Each story ends with a gentle warning about the dangers of habitat damage, followed by suggestions of what people can do to help. Effective use of illustrated narrative in animal nonfiction.
