"This field guide to the gray wolf lets children imagine they are scientists heading out to study this animal. . . Large-scale scenes in colorful, kid-friendly illustrations blend with smaller cutouts and chunked, descriptive text, resulting in a pleasing design that's accessible to browsing readers and focused students alike." --BooklistPraise for the Young Zoologist series:
"What makes this series stand out is that the illustrations, bite-sized facts, and clear labels make it easy for the youngest of readers to navigate the text and absorb the information there." -- Booklist "The well-illustrated Young Zoologist series guides readers through the lives and notable features of the spotlighted animals... prepares the young zoologist (aka the reader) for their upcoming adventure in the field, laying out tools necessary for investigating the animal. The bright, semi-realistic artwork could hold these titles on its own, but the easily digestible facts regarding life cycle, behavior, and conservation make the volumes well rounded. Each work is pragmatic in addressing the challenges these creatures face while helping aspiring zoologists learn ways to protect animals and their environments." --Booklist
