Wildlife of the World takes you on a journey through some of the most scenic and rich animal habitats — from the Amazon rain forests to the Himalayas, the Sahara to the South Pole — meeting the most important animals in each ecosystem along the way.
In Wildlife of the World truly spectacular portrait-style photography brings you "face-to-face" with individual animals in up-close and engrossing profiles on how the animals interact with their environments, mate, survive, and even play.
From the shaggy musk ox foraging in the Canadian high arctic to the angered Scottish wildcat prowling the Highlands to the rock-climbing gelada monkey of Ethiopia, each animal featured in Wildlife of the World plays a key role in its environment. An additional eighty-page illustrated reference section on the animal kingdom explains the animal groups and profiles additional species.
Produced in association with the Smithsonian Institution.
From School Library Journal: Gr 4 Up—Looking outside one's window can give students an appreciation for nature, and this volume greatly widens the view. Detailed data panels provide a snapshot of the size, diet, status, and habitat of each species. The book begins with information on animal habitats and then shifts the focus to species in more than 40 ecoregions. Vibrant, full-color images illuminate the pages, with each spread including one to four animals. Fascinating facts are presented in larger fonts and add intrigue to the topics; readers will learn that, for instance, every wolf has a unique howl. The maps will enhance geography lessons, with material on places such as Tornado Alley and Shark Bay. Climate charts and graphs reinforce chart reading skills and correlate to mathematics lessons. The last section, "The Animal Kingdom," discusses mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibian, fish, and invertebrates. For each branch, there is a brief overview of anatomy and reproduction and a classification chart. VERDICT Like a classic children's treasury book, this lavish work is an ideal option for researchers and browsers alike.—Beth McGuire, Hempfield Area School District, Greensburg, PA
