Gr 2-4-This well-designed set is a commendable introduction to six Asian animals-both familiar, such as tigers, and lesser-known, such as sloth bears. Each book starts off with a general introduction to Asia (which includes a spread that highlights geographical and cultural facts about the continent) and the subject animal. Chapters cover physical attributes, diets, habits, young, and more. Each book closes with information about the creature's survival. "Take a Closer Look" sections are written in a particularly lively style. Sidebars highlight unusual or interesting facts (e.g., "Giant pandas sometimes eat grasses, fruits, birds, rodents, or dead animals."), but do not interfere with the focus of the main text. Captioned color photos illustrate each spread. Back matter includes a page of additional facts. α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

"The texts are simple and clear enough for newly independent readers. The few difficult words such as "arboreal" are printed in a different color and defined in the text and/or glossary. Appealing, full-color photographs, as well as a few drawings, appear on almost every page. These titles would be most useful for satisfying the curiosity of children with questions about these creatures."
