Horn Book Review

Vivid photographs providing up-close views of the daily lives and habits of the title mammals are the highlight of these slim volumes. Minimal texts touch on habitat, appearance, diet, and offspring, and each supplies a folk-story answer to a question about the creature (e.g., "Why do snow leopards have spotted fur? People in Siberia told a story about this..."). Also available in Spanish. Reading list, websites. Ind. [Review covers these Amazing Animals titles: Sloths, Snow Leopards, Armadillos, Foxes, and Manatees.] (c) Copyright 2019. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
