This well-organized book presents numerous facts about the anatomy and life of Atlantic and Pacific salmon and all subspecies. Ogle's muted watercolor paintings clearly show anatomical detail... A graceful work about these remarkable creatures. (School Library Journal 200207)
Salmon is a very worthwhile resource book for the inquisitive elementary school student and deserves a place in every school and public library. The text is accompanied by attractive and accurate illustrations that carefully depict the changes in appearance and size of the fish from eyed-egg through mature adult and spawners and simultaneously portray the surrounding habitat and the predators therein. The scope is complete for the elementary school level, and the presentation will be of good value in stimulating the young mind to further research. (Science Books & Films 200210)
