Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

About the series: Each book in the Welcome to the World of Series introduces children to wildlife through color photographs, lively description and amazing facts.

Synopsis:

These are the latest titles in this popular series that introduces children to North American wildlife through color photographs and fascinating text. Young readers will be enchanted by America's smallest bird, the fearless hummingbird. Its resting heart rate is an astonishing 480 beats per minute and, unlike any other bird, it can fly backwards.

Few animals capture the imagination like wild horses. There are nearly 50,000 wild horses still roaming western North America. This book reveals their origins, their complex family systems, and how they live together off the land.

Synopsis:

Bears are amazing animals. This book captures them through color photographs and intriguing information by Diane Swanson. Polar bears can ski — scooting down slopes on all four feet, Grizzlies can run faster that cars are allowed to travel in towns, Lazy black bears sometimes fish lying down — they dangle a paw in the water and when a fish swims by, they scoop it out.
