ALA Booklist
The handsome, large-format Living Wild series introduces middle-grade readers to a range of wildlife through creature-specific volumes. A pair of crisp, beautiful photos graces each double-page spread, while the text appears within wide margins to fit comfortably on the page. Each book begins with a world map showing where various species of the animal live. A quick scientific overview follows, describing the creature's physical traits, habitat, diet, and abilities. Next, mating and reproduction are addressed. This is followed by a sometimes overlong chapter on the animal's cultural impact that cites myths, literature, movies, and television shows where it appears. Finally, the animal's welfare is examined in relation to factors such as global warming, habitat loss, pollution, and human activity. In Falcons, this keen-eyed raptor is revealed to be the fastest animal on earth and to inhabit every continent but Antarctica. A Native American legend or pourquoi tale about the featured animal closes each volume.
