Synopsis: Simple text and photographs introduce the physical characteristics, habits, and natural environment of the prairie dog, a cousin of the squirrel.

From School Library Journal: Grade 2-4 Casey has combined a spare, accurate text with some excellent color photos to produce a good introduction to the black-tailed prairie dog (despite one reference to ``black or white'' tails, the lifestyle depicted is not that of the less social white-tailed prairie dog). Daily life and communal living are briefly described, as is the development of the young. The brief text is printed in a large, bold typeface. The statement, ``These prairie dogs are used to people and are not afraid,'' which captions a photo of children hand-feeding a prairie dog, may be quite true, but it is not a good idea for books to promote handling prairie dogs or any other so-called ``tame'' animal, as they can deliver a nasty bite if startled or angered. Both Scott's Little Dogs of the Prairie (Putnam, 1977; o.p.) and Chace's Wonders of Prairie Dogs (Dodd, 1976; o.p.) are more informative, but are for older readers. All in all, this is a pleasant and approachable book about an animal fast disappearing from our Western plains. Patricia Manning, Eastchester Public Library, N.Y.
