Grade 5-9–This set highlights habitats throughout the world, emphasizing their diversity, their interactions and interdependence, and the human impact on them. While the entries are alphabetical, the Readers Guide is useful in understanding their arrangement and special features. Color coding indicates under which of six topics an article falls: Land Habitats, Freshwater and Marine Habitats, Human Habitats, Unique Habitats, General Topics, or Great Ecologists. Key Facts summaries, factoids, and references to related articles are numerous. Quality color photographs, labeled diagrams, drawings, and maps, in addition to a highly readable black typeface and a well-designed layout, enhance accessibility. Throughout the set, the articles offer clearly written definitions, descriptions, and explanations for terms and concepts that may be unfamiliar to readers. Two quibbles: choices for inclusion are sometimes unclear, and there is no pronunciation assistance. The final volume includes a glossary; a list of additional print, Internet, and museum resources; and six indexes. Libraries with a limited budget may choose to stick with a general encyclopedia for comparable information. However, Habitats is a good choice for libraries fielding numerous requests for information on the topic.–Tina Hudak, St. Albans School for Boys, Washington, DC
