This is a fine starter series for kids interested studying different animals. Rabbits, Pikas and Hares is our most recent read with the wonderful and interesting Animals in Order series. I have to say, my kids (and I) just can't get enough of these...they are such fun reading! What I like a great deal about this series (and it's held for more than 10 books now) is that it takes time at the beginning of the book to look at (briefly) what makes an animal (in this case a lagomorph) part of a particular species belong to a specific order, getting into what traits exactly (in this case) make an a mammal a lagomorph. The book then goes into the "order" of living things which details the kingdom, phylum and class , order, family and species (with a handy visual chart for reference, great for younger kids, so they can SEE how it works rather than just read it or have it read to them). This is one of the better features of this series and this exact text appears in each book. Next the author goes specifically into where lagomorphs fit into animal kingdom, breaking it down (in words and pictures again) to kingdom (animal), phylum (chordate), class (mammal) and order (lagomorphs). In this section we learn that there are approximately 28 different orders of mammals - and that lagomorphs make up ONE of orders (and that there are 80 species of lagomorphs...and they can be found on nearly every continent)!

The book also talks a bit about where lagomorphs fit into food chain and where they can be found in habitats including; grasslands and woodlands, the far north, swamps and even in the desert. Rabbits, Pikas and Hares goes from there into an overview of fifteen species complete with full page, color photographs for each one, which really serve to bring the information to life.
