Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-7-- In 1941 only 16 whooping cranes survived in the world. Since that time, scientists in the United States and Canada have cooperated on a number of projects in an attempt to save the endangered crane. Patent's absorbing report of work at the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center in Maryland and Grays Lake National Wildlife Refuge in Idaho offers children a sense of the tentative, ongoing nature of current experiments. Her book is a model of clear and concise science writing, conveying excitement and arousing curiosity about the subject. Although her emphasis is clearly upon conservation efforts, Patent includes enough basic information about the biology of the whooping crane to make this more valuable than the title implies. Munoz' photographs, a mixture of color and black and white, are of varying quality, but considering the whooping cranes' tendency to live as far from humans as possible, the photographs are more than adequate. Pair this with Faith McNulty's Peeping in the Shell (Harper, 1986), which elaborates upon an experiment in imprinting and breeding briefly mentioned in Patent's absorbing survey. --Ellen Fader, Westport Public Library, Conn.
