KIRKUS REVIEW

Another in the Moments in the Wild series (Amusing Moments in the Wild: Animals and Their Friends, above, etc.) continues with the same successful format: superb double-page-spread nature photographs and one simple, patterned sentence that explicates the theme. This volume focuses on habitats and homes, introducing 13 different creatures from around the world, including kangaroos from Australia, giraffes from the grasslands of Africa, and emperor penguins from their iceberg in Antarctica. The single sentence within each spread is printed in large colored type with the habitat name printed in larger white type. Each sentence names the animal, includes some sort of interesting action, and then highlights the name of the habitat or home, with the geographic location included when appropriate. Brightly colored borders surround each spread with tiny silhouettes of the particular animal in white. The attractive format and high-quality photographs make this series a natural selection for public and school libraries. (Nonfiction. 2-7)
