Asian Animals – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple
This well-designed set is a commendable introduction to six Asian animals–both familiar, such as tigers, and lesser-known, such as sloth bears. Each book starts off with a general introduction to Asia (which includes a spread that highlights geographical and cultural facts about the continent) and the subject animal. Chapters cover physical attributes, diets, habits, young, and more. Each book closes with information about the creature’s survival. Sidebars highlight unusual or interesting facts, but do not interfere with the focus of the main text.
