Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On remote Codfish Island off the southern coast of New Zealand live the last ninety-one kakapo parrots on earth. These trusting, flightless, and beautiful birdsand#8212;the largest and most unusual parrots on earthand#8212;have suffered devastating population loss.

Now, on an island refuge with the last of the species, New Zealandand#8217;s National Kakapo Recovery Team is working to restore the kakapo population. With the help of fourteen humans who share a single hut and a passion for saving these odd ground-dwelling birds, the kakapo are making a comeback in New Zealand.

Follow intrepid animal lovers Sy Montgomery and Nic Bishop on a ten-day excursion to witness the exciting events in the life of the kakapo.

Synopsis:

Bat scientist Dr. Merlin Tuttle and his colleagues at Bat Conservation International study these fascinating creatures of the night, in hopes of protecting them from a new disease called White-nose symdrome, which threatens many speciesand#8217; very existence.

Synopsis:

A beautifully photographed Scientists in the Field entry about Craig George, son of childrenand#39;s author Jean Craighead George, and his life in Barrow, Alaska, as an arctic whale scientist and expert on the bowhead whale.

Synopsis:

As fascinating and informative as ever, this sequel to Jenkinsand#39; equally impressive Actual Size presents prehistoric creatures to lifesize proportions. Itand#39;s hard to imagine a six foot long millipede or a dinosaur even smaller than a chicken, but readers come face to face with these and many more in this outstanding nonfiction offering from a Caldecott Honor winner.

Synopsis:

In this beautifully designed addition to the Scientists in the Field series, journey to the Namibian desert and witness one of natureand#39;s largest, most complex, and most intelligent mammals through the eyes of an exacting and innovative scientist.

Synopsis:

KAKAPO RESCUEand#160;gives young readers a first hand account of the efforts to save one of the worldand#39;s rarest and more unusual birds, the kakapo. Part of the Scientist in the Field series.

Synopsis:

In the sprawling African scrub desert of Etosha National Park in Namibia, they call her "the mother of all elephants." Holding binoculars closely to her eyes, American scientist Caitlin Oand#8217;Connell could not believe what she was seeing from these African elephants: as the mighty matriarch scanned the horizon, the other elephants followed suit, stopped midstride, and stood as still as statues.

This observation would guide the scientist to a groundbreaking discovery about elephant communication: elephants actually listen with their limbs.

The Elephant Scientist was named a 2012 Robert F. Sibert Honor Book.

Synopsis:

What is it like to come face-to-face with the ten-foot-tall terror bird? Or stare into the mouth of the largest meat eater ever to walk the earth? Can you imagine a millipede that is more than six feet long, or a dinosaur smaller than a chicken? In this andldquo;actual sizeandrdquo; look at the prehistoric world, which includes two dramatic gatefolds, youandrsquo;ll meet these awe-inspiring creatures, as well as many others.
