Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Three new titles in the highly-regarded "Our Wild World series explore the fascinating animals of the American prairies. Each title is packed with information on the animal, its habitat, diet, breeding, babies, socialization, dangers, and life cycle. "Our Wild World titles are in-depth and thorough, and so much more than just a collection of amazing facts. These books capture the essence of the featured animal and instill in readers an understanding of the animal's true nature. "Hawks provides information on all aspects of these raptors, but zeroes in on their amazing predatory behavior. "Prairie Dogs will captivate readers by highlighting the animals' incredible ability to communicate--they even describe things to each other! "Wild Horses delves into the history of wild horses and details the extraordinary journey the species has made to reach the wild prairies of the United States. Each title includes 25 full-color, action photos, several full-color, detailed illustrations, and many Fun Facts throughout. "Hawks, Prairie Dogs, and "Wild Horses are detailed and entertaining reads, with straightforward language and a kid-friendly approach. Kids find books in the "Our Wild World series perfect for school reports or just for fun.

Synopsis:

Animals facing threats from human encroachment are featured in these offerings from the Our Wild World series. Prairie Dogs looks at critters considered a keystone species by scientists, linked to the survival of about 40 other species. Horse-lovers will gravitate to the doe-eyed bays on the cover of Wild Horses, which introduces readers to the scattered herds of mustangs still roaming the U.S. Both books spend a great deal of time on these animals' fascinating social systems, from the bands of mares led by a single stallion to prairie dog towns subdivided into coteries. The prose is consistently clear and lively, although Lorbiecki's breathless marveling at prairie dogs' language of chirks, yips, and other vocalizations may lead children to anthropomorphize more than is warranted.
