K-Gr 3-The lives of eight wild canines-from birth to adulthood-are introduced in these accessible titles. The texts are comprised of short sentences set in a large font. While most of the young ones are adorable, only the fennec foxes retain their endearing quality through maturity. In contrast, adult African wild dogs, dingoes, and jackals can be scary looking. Bright color photos, many full-spread, dominate the pages. Some shots border on graphic. For example, one photo shows a coyote parent carrying a dead rabbit and another presents an African wild dog with a bloody carcass in its mouth. Each volume offers a size comparison between the subject and a human adult and child and a map that shows where the species live. Side boxes enhance but do not interrupt the texts. Picture glossaries conclude every book. Perfect for beginning readers, novice report writers, and browsers. gas(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal.
