About the Author:

Molly Kolpin studied English at Gustavus Adolphus College and now writes full-time. Growing up, Molly was a horse-crazy girl who collected model horses and read every horse book she could find. She recently traveled to the heart of horse country for a visit to Churchill Downs – the site where the Kentucky Derby is held each year. Molly lives in Madison, Wisconsin.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-6-Written from a conservationist's point of view, this series is made more impressive by the academic "oomph" of its expert consultants (among them a professor of biology, a zoo curator, and a director at the World Wildlife Fund). Organization and scope are superb. Each title opens with a vivid, interest-grabbing description of its subject and continues with thorough and clearly written chapters on physical traits, habitat, and life cycle; each one concludes with information about why the animal is endangered and how kids can help. New words are defined not only in the glossaries, but also at the bottom of the pages on which they appear-a user-friendly way to help readers without prior knowledge learn essential words such as "poaching," "ecosystem," and "rehabilitation." Well-labeled maps, diagrams, color photos, and sidebars add a wealth of information to each attractive page. The "Read More" and "Internet Sites" recommendations are age-appropriate and current. A stellar set for research or general perusing.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
