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:

Owls are a hoot Whether they're hunting in the forest or hiding in a prairie burrow, these birds are full of tricks. Did you know that burrowing owlets can imitate rattlesnakes to scare away their enemies? Or that saw-whet owls can throw their voices from tree to tree, like ventriloquists? From hoots to spooks, Diane Swanson reveals the mischievous world of owls in the wild.
