In-Text Review: “How to Care for Your New Pet Set 2” (Mitchell Lane/Little Mitchie) is a fine pet ownership set, while ­Crabtree’s “Be a Pet Expert” offers practical tips, fun facts, and trivia. “Starting Out” (The Creative Company/Creative Education) and “Animal Babies” (Bearport/Bearcub) both feature highly appealing photos with different but equally effective narrative approaches. Some series offer particularly strong interactive elements. “Dangerous…or Not?” (Rourke/Escape) provides a “danger meter” to encourage readers to speculate and compare, supported by well-chosen facts. “Whose Is This?” (Capstone/Pebble) presents a guessing game format that also builds knowledge. “In Focus: Sharks” (Quarto/QEB), “Spooky Animals (ABDO/Abdo Kids Jumbo),” and “Deadly Biters” (Rosen/Gareth Stevens) all offer informative and ­appealing packages that discuss individual animal groups for elementary school readers.
