REINDEER by Emery Bernhard


Email this review


Collaborators on three other nature titles (Eagles, p. 392, etc.; The Girl Who Wanted to Hunt, see above), husband-and-wife team Emery and Durga Bernhard have joined again to create Reindeer, a factual account of the habits and lives of these marvelous homed animals. Children will learn where reindeer live, why their antlers grow, what they eat, their migration patterns, how reindeer calves are born, who their enemies are, and how their lives have intersected with those of humans living in proximity to them. The text is simple and easy to follow; its straightforward manner will appeal even to very young readers. And children of all ages will respond to the strong outlines and bold imaginative colors that give the illustrations an elemental quality. A glossary adds to the usefulness of this fine book on a fascinating cold-weather creature.
