Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-5?The coverage in this revision of Wildlife of the World (1993) has been expanded to include representatives from all five biotic kingdoms, plus several habitats. Also, the addition of cross-references makes it easier to use. The nearly 400 articles are arranged in a single alphabet; each one fills one spread with systematic information about its subject's appearance, habits, life cycle, and related species, plus two captioned, sharply focused color photos, a summary box, and a range map. Volume 1 opens with a discussion of traditional taxonomy and an annotated table of contents (e.g., "JAGUAR, part of the cat family. JELLYFISH, a headless invertebrate"). Volume 17 contains a lengthier look at classification, plus five indexes. Though design constraints are obviously wagging the dog here ("Ocean" gets as much space as "Oak"), and the lack of Web sites and any indexing for endangered species cut off important avenues of research, this resource is well suited for mass assignments and individual inquiry, and will be a popular component of library collections.?John Peters, New York Public Library
