Gr. 4^-7. Jacobs' comprehensive resource takes an in-depth look at a field that many youngsters are unaware of: wildlife rehabilitation. Deforestation and destruction of their natural habitats have forced wildlife into suburban and even some urban areas, increasing the chances of interaction with humans. The author guides readers through the three-step process of helping displaced wildlife--rescue, rehabilitation, and release--then dedicates a chapter each to rehabilitating mammals and reptiles, marine animals, and birds. The remaining sections give specific advice about protecting wildlife, "wildproofing" one's home, and aiding injured or orphaned creatures. The book is jammed with real-life stories of animals and rehabilitators, black-and-white photos, drawings, and charts. Jacobs has also included an extensive section containing information on wildlife agencies, a bibliography of books and videos, and a glossary. This thorough guide will be of interest to animal lovers and also serve as a much-needed community resource. Lauren Peterson
