Field Guides Set 3-School Library Journal
Splashing real images of birds, bugs, and more for identification purposes, this collection of field guides is the fun out in the wilderness book for adventurous tweens to try. There is the expected information standard in guides like this such as species and differentiation markers, but there is also an element of fun in the mix, introducing sometimes scary creatures like turkey vultures.
VERDICT These are indispensable for youth nature groups who frequently explore the outdoors and are also a welcome addition to middle school classrooms looking to learn more about the animals.
