Animal Icons – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

This well-organized series features animals that have become cultural symbols in America. After a brief introduction, the chapters proceed in logical order, discussing the animal’s history, body specifics, (“Plate to Plate” in Armadillos, “Beak to Talons” in Bald Eagles, etc.), behavior, life cycle, eating habits, and expectations for future survival. Each volume includes a chapter that explains why the featured creature is considered iconic; myths and stories about it are also infused throughout the lively texts. Glossary words are in bold font. Additional information is provided by way of “Icon Extras” text boxes; clear, color photographs (most of them captioned), maps, etc. abound. . . . Positive additions for most collections.
