SQUIRREL WATCHING by Miriam Schlein

SQUIRREL WATCHING

by Miriam Schlein & photographed by Marjorie Pillar

Age Range: 8 - 10

Pub Date: March 30th, 1992
ISBN: 0-06-022753-2
Publisher: HarperCollins

 A well-known author of nature books considers different kinds of squirrels, how they behave, and what they look like; the book includes many indifferent b&w photos and a slightly easier text than Bare's Tree Squirrels (1983). Overall, Bare's book is superior: unlike Schlein's, it gives scientific names for the squirrels described, and it has a more extensive index and clearer, more interesting photos. Schlein's is acceptable as an additional purchase. Brief bibliography; index. (Nonfiction. 8-10)
