SLJ Review Underground Animal Life

Solid introductions to six mammals that live in underground homes. Photos show the animals in or near their homes, followed by a description and a clear two-page diagram showing tunnels and various rooms.

Dimensions of the underground spaces are provided for some, but an inset scaled photo
of the creature conveys the size adequately. Subsequent text examines the ways that their home affects the creatures’ life cycles, ranging from child rearing to evading predators.

Full-page ­photographs provide solid visual context for physical features and behaviors described in the text, though the armadillo is the only animal depicted in the act of actually digging out its underground home.

VERDICT: Useful additions to animal ­habitat sections.
