About this title


In the late 1800s, the roseate spoonbill was on the brink of extinction in North America. This large bird was hunted for its beautiful pink-and-white feathers, which were used to make hats and fans. However, conservationists and government agencies stepped in to help, and their efforts helped the roseate spoonbill population recover. These animals can now be found in the wetlands of Florida, Louisiana, and Texas. The birds' future survival depends on protecting their habitat in the Gulf Coast region. In Roseate Spoonbill: Pretty in Pink, kids go on a real-life adventure with scientists in the field as they study these magnificent wild birds. Along the way, children will discover the roseate spoonbill's life cycle, diet, behavior, and physical characteristics. Large, full-color photos and a dramatic narrative format will keep readers turning the pages. Roseate Spoonbill: Pretty in Pink is part of Bearport's America's 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.
