9781617725807: Ringtail: Miner's Cat (America's Hidden Animal Treasures (Bearport))

Ringtails are small mammals that are sometimes called miners cats. They got their nickname in the 1800s, when miners in California and Arizona kept them as pets because they were so good at catching mice! Today, ringtails live in the wild throughout the Midwest and western United States, but people rarely see them. Ringtails are solitary animals that avoid people, and they are active at night, when most people are asleep. In Ringtail: Miners Cat, kids go on a real-life adventure with biology professor David Wyatt as he tracks ringtails in an area of California called Sutter Buttes. Along the way, children will discover this fascinating animals diet, behavior, habitat, and physical characteristics. Large, full?color photos and a dramatic narrative format will keep readers turning the pages. Ringtail: Miners Cat is part of Bearports Americas Hidden Animal Treasures series.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5-This set highlights some of the lesser-known animals with whom we share our country. While students may have some familiarity with cougars, they are less likely to have heard of the other creatures. Each volume starts with a high-interest story and goes on to describe its subject's habitat, physical traits, diet, and family. Engaging narratives are interspersed with numerous captioned color photos and text boxes. The vocabulary is rich. For example, Jaguarundi introduces the concept of extirpation and Cougar discusses expansion. The habitat loss that threatens each of these species is a common topic, and the tone encourages a thoughtful approach toward the environment.α(c) Copyright 2011.
