Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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:

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:

Discover these fascinating and elusive creatures.

The wolverine is a fierce predator that tends to hunt in only the most remote wilderness areas. A relative of the mink, this dog-sized animal is capable of hunting deer or caribou and can drive a cougar from its kill. It can bite through bones with its powerful jaws or sniff out a field mouse, even under deep snow.

The wolverine is a shy animal that tries to avoid contact with humans. Its population has decreased because of low birth rates and human settlements. Recognized as endangered, wolverines are considered a rare and vulnerable species.

About the series: Through full color wildlife photography and engaging text, Diane Swanson continues her acclaimed Welcome to the World of... series, which contains nearly 30 titles and inspires, fascinates and educates children.
