Synopsis: This informative series helps students make connections between animals of today and their ancient relatives. The books include photographs of actual fossils, as well as pictures of what scientists think early animals looked like when they were alive. What better way to learn about how climate, environment, and natural selection affect the evolution of a species? Striking pictures and fact-filled text help kids understand that all living creatures must adapt in order to survive.

From Booklist: Reviewed with Marianne Johnston's Sharks Past and Present

Gr. 3-5. The Prehistoric Animals and Their Modern-Day Relatives series does a fine job of presenting its information when it comes to target audience. First, there is the informal tone: "What would you do if your little brother ran into the house and said, 'Hey, I just saw a dinosaur'?" Then there is the succinct yet interesting way the information is presented. The graphics are equally effective--a mix of photos and computer-generated art in a wide-open design with good-size print. Sharks discusses the creatures' ancient history and explains how they have managed to remain surprisingly unchanged over 400 million years. Dinosaurs details the structural similarities between dinosaurs and birds and explains why many scientists believe that one species evolved into the other. Both books feature helpful glossaries and list a few Web sites, but there are no bibliographies. Report writers may find the information here easier to work with than in some of the larger, more visually impressive books, where the text is presented mostly in captions to the art. Ilene Cooper
