An exploration of familiar backyard animals. Each spread is composed of a few sentences that provide basic information on physical characteristics, size, diet, predators, or offspring. Diagrams that repackage this content using photographs are found throughout. In addition to a map locating where in North America the topic species is most prominent, a conservation scale (ranging from a bright green “Least Concern” to a deep red for “Extinct”) is featured. The appeal here is the crisp photos that showcase the animals in a way that can be described simply as cute: an eastern chipmunk with its cheeks full, a squirrel with its tiny pink tongue out, a plump hummingbird on a branch, and a doe-eyed skunk. Consider these additions as primers for local outdoor field trips with lower elementary students.
