Hidden deep in America's mountains, forests, and deserts are some of the most amazing animals on the planet. Unfortunately, few people have ever been able to see them--until now. In America's Hidden Animal Treasures, young readers go on real-life adventures with wildlife biologists who are studying everything from collared peccaries, with pig-like snouts and bristly fur, to elusive raccoon-like ringtails, with huge eyes and long, puffy tails. These rare creatures are truly some of America's greatest hidden treasures. Now everyone has a chance to view these amazing animals up close through dazzling photos and exciting stories that bring these seldom-seen animals to dramatic life.

America's Hidden Animal Treasures

This set highlights some of the lesser-known animals with whom we share our country. While students may have some familiarity with cougars, they are less likely to have heard of the other creatures. Each volume starts with a high-interest story and goes on to describe its subject’s habitat, physical traits, diet, and family. Engaging narratives are interspersed with numerous captioned color photos and text boxes. The vocabulary is rich. For example, Jaguarundi introduces the concept of extirpation and Cougar discusses expansion. The habitat loss that threatens each of these species is a common topic, and the tone encourages a thoughtful approach toward the environment.
