HASH(0x9e2bfa98) out of 5 stars Two Good Books in One! Feb. 27 2009
By HeatherHH - Published on
The first 48 pages are a complete book on deer, then the page numbering starts over with the next 48 pages being a complete book on rabbits and hares. Each "book" even having its own title page and index!

Did you know in a normal rabbit's two-year lifespan it can produce 160 babies, which can produce 3000 grandchildren? Or that a snowshoe hare can jump 15 feet straight up in the air? Or that a three-week old fawn has already doubled its birth weight and can outrun the average adult man? Or that a deer swallows its food unchewed, storing it in a special part of its stomach, and bringing it back up to its mouth later to chew (called chewing its cud)?

These books are full of basic and interesting information about each animal, including physical description, location (including range maps), eating, reproduction, babies, etc. The language used is understandable with minimal explanation to elementary-aged children, but doesn't come across as dumbed-down. I enjoyed reading this book to my 7- and 5 1/2- year-old children and learned many things myself. This book is also filled with lovely photographs. In fact, most two page spreads have one page of text and one full-page photograph.

I have one other book in this series, and I would definitely be interested in acquiring other titles. I would definitely recommend this book.
