Kindergarten-Grade 3-- A plea is made to save the environment for the protection of wildlife in these two series entries. Using an open format of spare text and large photographs, Hirschi writes in a poetic style similar to that found in many of his other nature books. Readers are invited to take a walk along the seashore in Puffins and through a wetlands habitat in Swans . Through picturesque landscapes, animals that currently exist in these areas are shown, and the text raises questions about those that are endangered. This approach successfully develops an awareness of the beauty and importance of a natural habitat and provides reasons for the changes that threaten animal survival. Young readers may have some difficulty comprehending how these animals are missing when so many appear in photographs, but most will understand the overall theme, especially when shared with an adult. An introduction and afterword will be of interest to older readers, and a list of suggestions for both independent and school projects to call attention to the environment is included. Two additions for nature collections with special value for introducing environmental concerns. --Diane Nunn, Richard E. Byrd Elementary School, Glen Rock, NJ
