Kindergarten-Grade 2. Two introductory series titles about the life cycles of animals in the wild. Full-color photos and drawings appear throughout, and the large and easy texts contain bolded words that are explained in the glossaries. Prairie Dog follows the development of the animal from pup to adult, touching briefly on its behavior and habitat. A cross section of a burrow and an illustration showing other types of rodents are included. Beginning with eggs about to hatch, Salmon are shown leaving the nest, migrating to the ocean, leaping up waterfalls, changing color, fighting over a female, escaping predators, and finally returning to their original river. A double-page diagram of the parts of the sockeye salmon's body is presented and other kinds of fish are pictured. In both books, brief mention is made of the perils that face these animals due to human encroachment?prairie dogs are losing their habitat and salmon suffer in polluted waters. Both offerings will enhance any unit on native species of animals.?Helen Rosenberg, St. Scholastica High School, Chicago, IL
