Hunting (Outdoor Adventure) – Booklist

Books for young children about hunting are scarce, despite the pursuit’s popularity in many parts of the U.S. This overview fills the gap. . . . Each double-page spread offers several paragraphs of text, with material about hunters’ varied motivations; hunting safety and tools; and the sport’s history and codes of conduct. Klein assumes an audience with enthusiastic views of hunting, focusing his ethics discussion on problems such as poaching, and the book’s color photos emphasize the great outdoors and minimize shots of dead animals. . . . Children anticipating joining elders in hunting expeditions will appreciate the book’s broad scope and positive tone.
