Part of a Series: Backyard Safari.

“Squirrels thrive in all kinds of environments, from Alaska’s frozen plains to New York’s Central Park.” These furry critters are perfect subjects to observe during local safaris throughout the year. The informative text is set against a warm, yellow background and plenty of color photos of squirrels in action are scattered throughout the volume. After an introduction (including information about habitat, predators, body parts, diet, etc.), readers are encouraged to become explorers and search for squirrels in their communities. “Safari Tip” sidebars offer helpful hints and chapter three, “A Guide to Squirrels,” depicts different types of the species, making identification easy. A glossary, reading list, Web site list, and an index conclude.
