Booklist, May 2021

Young animal lovers and budding conservationists will find an excellent resource in the Saving Animals series, which spotlights animals whose way of life is in danger, often due to climate change, and provides information on ways people can help them. Saving American Crocodiles explores the ways crocodiles survive in high temperatures, their important role in their food web, and the dangers they are encountering due to habitat loss. Saving Green Sea Turtles takes readers on the turtles’ long journeys to migrate, mate, and find homes. It also explores the important role these turtles play in keeping coral reefs healthy and delves into the threats humans pose through fishing and pollution. Saving Mountain Gorillas provides information on the incredible cloud forests that mountain gorillas call home, details the interactions between mountain gorilla packs, and notes the dangers incurred by habitat loss. In Saving Polar Bears, readers learn about the unique features polar bears possess that allow them to survive in frigid Arctic temperatures and how climate change is threatening their lives. Each title is divided into four well-organized chapters that include large color photographs, maps and graphs, and informational sidebars. Readers will also learn what conservationists, scientists, and others are doing to help protect animals and the environment. A brief quiz, glossary, and list of recommended books accompanies each title. —Selenia Paz
