Synopsis: Although the desert is a dry biome, it has a variety of animals. Readers explore both hot and cold deserts, and are introduced to endangered species such as the Sahara Deserts slender-horned gazelle. Also explained, are the subjects of climate change, poaching, and human activities that are affecting the worlds deserts. Accessible, informative text illustrates how these threats can be lessened.

From Booklist: The Save the Earth’s Animals! series breaks down endangered species by biome, and here the focus is on desert dwellers. Before launching into the individual creatures, the title explores the region’s climate and the various habitats: shrubs, cacti, and so on. The five featured animals are the slender-horned gazelle, the Egyptian vulture, Nelson’s antelope squirrel, the Bactrian camel, and the desert tortoise. For many readers, this will be an introduction to these particular species, and they’ll find the close-up photographs, generally two per animal, helpful. The Nelson’s antelope squirrel (anyone?) with its small, rounded ears is facing extinction due to the development of roads, houses, and businesses; hopefully, new laws will help. This is a bare-bones introduction to both the animals and the topic of extinction, and it would be best used as a jumping-off point for further reading. The afterword states, “it is our job to help endangered animals so that we do not lose these important species,” but kids will need to look elsewhere for in-depth information. Still, a colorful, succinct introduction to animals in need of protection. Grades 1-4, --Ann Kelley
