Moose for Kids: Moose Are Like That

Jeff Fair, Author Northword Press $14.95 (47p) ISBN 978-1-55971-187-6
For those harboring a desire to track moose in the great North Woods--from a comfy armchair--Fair is the perfect guide. In a humorous, conversational style, he sweeps the reader up in a torrent of information. Large, beautifully composed color photographs and lighthearted drawings augment the book's easy rhythm as readers glide through facts concerning the seasonal perfume of moose droppings; ugly stages when moose go bald; and the winter torment of itchy antlers. While this book brings the woods inside to both confirmed and would-be naturalists, it may also invigorate a desire to head outdoors and observe. (``Smell the evergreen air and the moldy aroma of muck from the marsh.'') As youngsters get the hang of discovering ``moose signs,'' improved observation skills may even transfer to other situations. Ages 5-8. (Dec.)
