Large, peaceful, and slow-moving, it is no wonder why manatees are known as the cows of the sea. Readers will learn where manatees live, what they eat, and how they raise their young. They will also find out how these aquatic mammals breathe air while spending so much time underwater and how human activities have caused them harm.

Each of these new titles in the Nature’s Children series discusses one species in context. The books focus not only on the animals themselves—including fairly standard information on their bodies, life cycle, and young—but also on their environment and history. Many readers may also be interested in the conservation efforts highlighted in each book. A Fact File at the beginning of each book usefully presents basic information about the animal in one place. The Fun Facts that supplement the text on many pages add interesting, if not exactly “fun,” details. Although the text is quite good, the striking, high-quality, eye-catching photos are the true stars of these books. The photos in Manatees convey a strong feeling of the underwater world where these animals live, without ever sacrificing clarity and sharpness. Readers of all ages will be drawn to the photos in these books even as they learn from the text. Grades 3-5. --Miriam Aronin
