Book Review: These titles in the “Amazing Animals” series (10 new titles) reveal why even some of the world’s most well-known animals are indeed extraordinary. Double-page spreads are comprised of one page with large text made up of a few short sentences and a facing full-page, color photo of the animal in action. The spreads cover such topics as the animal’s physical characteristics, habitat, movement, and diet, as well as how the female gives birth and raises young and where humans might typically see the animal (e.g., in caves or at the zoo). Bats emphasizes the differences between megabats, which live in warm climates and can see colors to help them find fruits to eat, and microbats, which can live in cooler climates, can hibernate, and use echolocation to find close prey. Though undocumented, a brief folk tale about the animal concludes each book. The series’ content and design work together to develop and encourage young science readers.
