Humpback Whales : Musical Migrating Mammals

School Library Journal

Gr 3-5-After establishing basic concepts, four chapters cover physical characteristics, habitat, unique behaviors and life cycle. Each chapter begins with a description of the titled animal, then goes on to compare the subject with several different animals. Grizzly bears are compared to wolverines, three-banded armadillos, wild boars, black-footed ferrets, striped skunks, American bison, jaguars, and titi monkeys. A chart in each chapter summarizes traits of the featured animal with one of the compared animals. A final chart uses six traits to compare all nine animals, three of which are characteristic of all mammals, the others of which are more species specific, such as hibernation (for grizzlies). Other than quibbles with the inconsistent use of scientific terms in the glossaries, the information is, for the most part, clear and consistent. VERDICT The unusual comparison of mammal traits makes this a series worth considering. © Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Each presentation covers appearance, habitat, skill, and traits for its subject while also comparing and contrasting the focal animal with other mammals by text, photos, and charts. Some comparisons seem natural (similar-looking African elephants and white rhinos); some surprisingly revealing (both sperm whales and vampire bats use echolocation); some random, without relevant comparative features (grizzly bears and titi monkeys). Reading list, websites. Bib., glos, ind. [Review covers the following Comparing Animal Traits titles: African Elephants, Gray Wolves, Grizzly Bears, Humpback Whales, Mountain Gorillas, Platypuses, Siberian Tigers, and Vampire BAts.] (c) Copyright 2015.
