The author of Black-Footed Ferret provides an introduction to the prairie dog in this brief book with large, bold type. Color photographs on each page show the prairie dog eating, making burrows and nests, cleaning, grooming, kissing, and scurrying from danger. Other animals shown include the buffalo, pronghorn antelope, rabbit, snake, eagle and fox. The photos are not always as carefully selected or cropped as they might be, but on a whole they are strong and appealing. The text presents information on daily life and habits of the prairie dog. Should be useful as a browsing nature title for beginning readers. Index.
