"Tackling recent incidents involving animals in jeopardy, these well-organized books go behind the sensational headlines to provide a deeper understanding of the issues. The titles document the problem, give relevant background information, investigate probable causes, and suggest possible solutions. Excellent discussions address those who doubt the severity of the issue and those who wonder why people should care what happens to animals. The captioned photographs are timely and poignant. Despite grim predictions, the books maintain an encouraging tone. A first-rate series that makes serious subject matter interesting and accessible." - Series Made Simple; School Library Journal

"Animals change along with human populations. Each book in this series begins with a problem that is solved through a series of questions. For example, in the elephant book, elephants act out and turn against their trainers. At the end, there are solutions for learning to co-exist with the elephants. I was intrigued by the flowcharts and the lists of animal resources/organizations. Each book also includes colorful photos, charts, maps, and graphic organizers. Vocabulary is defined in context as well as in a glossary. Bibliography. Glossary. Websites Table of Contents. Index. Additional Selection." - Library Media Connection

"If anything, Deformed Frogs is a unique way to approach and support an organic lifestyle. The premise of this non-fiction, educational work is for the reader to sleuth their way through the enigma of why, in some habitats, up to 60% of frogs are disfigured, either with abnormal, additional or missing limbs. What we discover is that there are three very plausible explanations: pesticide use on farmsteads, flatworm parasites that cause cysts in tadpoles, and a weak ozone layer that allows harmful UV-B rays to shine through. Like any animal, frogs play a large role in their ecosystem, eating pesky insects and serving as a food source for others. Their demise could greatly affect the health of their environment and also foreshadow our own future, suggests author Kathy Allen, as both species share similar characteristics. Students will appreciate how scientists approach such baffling issues and attempt to advocate for and protect frogs. Check out the Save The Frogs campaign for neat ways your kid can help these rather cute amphibians, including the establishment of a frog pond at their school.
