Blink of an Eye

Clearly presented information and exciting action photos make these portraits of speedy creatures above-average choices. The level of detail in each one isn’t very deep, but readers will come away with a solid basic understanding of each animal’s natural range, habitat, food, prey and predators, and top speed (compared on each opening spread to slower human sprinters or swimmers as well as other animals) and the physical adaptations that account for it. The short and easy texts accompany big, sharp color photos of each animal at rest or in either pursuit or being chased. A link to web resources compiled on the publisher’s page enhances the lists of further-reading resources.
