Gr 2-4-These titles combine facts about biomes with information about the endangered animals that live there. Each book begins with a description of the biome, including the climate and the various habitats. Then five endangered creatures are introduced along with a map that shows where they live. Each book ends by encouraging readers to help save them. The texts consist of two paragraphs per spread in a large font and do not provide in-depth information, but they offer good introductory material about why these animals are endangered, critically endangered, or threatened; their habitats; their predators; and other factors contributing to their threatened status. The photos provide large, clear images of the animals described; however, some spreads featuring an endangered creature include a large picture of one of its predator on the left side, which is potentially confusing. Overall, these attractive books offer solid introductory information for reports.-Stephanie Farnlacher, Trace Crossings Elementary School, Hoover, ALα(c) Copyright 2011.
