Through meticulously detailed illustrations, this visually dynamic survey contrasts day and night in five of North America's prominent deserts-the Chihuahuan, the Great Basin, the Mojave (including Death Valley), the Painted, and the Sonoran-and highlights the unique animals, plants, and geological formations of each. From the desert spiny lizard and the greater roadrunner to the spotted bat and desert banded gecko, this survey examines the diverse array of animals, birds, and reptiles occupying these arid lands. Intricate watercolor illustrations are accompanied by lists of animals and names in each spread. In addition to legends identifying the animals, the guide also includes maps pinpointing the deserts' locales, overviews of the respective desert environments, and fun creature factoids. Examining altitude, temperature, and climate, the text also pays special attention to global warming and its effects. Downloadable black-and-white coloring sheets round out this engaging and educational resource that celebrates the deserts' majestic beauty.

From Booklist:

This fully illustrated, large-format book features six North American deserts: the Chihuahuan, Sonoran, Great Basin, Mojave, the Painted Desert, and Death Valley. With paired double-page illustrations for each desert, the book’s main section shows each panoramic scene twice, first in daylight, then at night. On every spread, readers are challenged to find 18 species of animals, listed in the narrow border beneath the picture. Teeming with wildlife, the main illustrations create distinctive looks for the different ecosystems in detailed ink drawings washed with watercolors. A shorter section of related answer pages expands the information offered. A double-page spread on each desert includes a few paragraphs on its climate and ecosystem, “Fun Facts” about a few of the creatures living there, and smaller black-and-white versions of the previous color illustrations with a key to identifying the animals pictured. Lists of recommended books and Internet sites are appended. An engaging introduction to American deserts. Grades 2-4. --Carolyn Phelan
