Gr 3-5 These fine introductions to the giraffe and the zebra are well written in a clear, readable style, and each is illustrated with an excellent selection of color photographs taken in a New Jersey safari park. Basic information on behavior patterns, the various species and subspecies of each animal, physical characteristics, reproduction, and care of the young are provided in both books. Past and present threats to the existence of each animal are discussed, as well as present efforts by conservationists to keep these unique creatures from extinction. Each book tells of newborn members in the giraffe and zebra herds in the safari park. These stories are well integrated with the informational content, add an extra sense of realism, and will hold readers' attention. Louise Brown's Giraffes (Dodd, 1980) is a useful book, but Arnold's Giraffe surpasses it with its superb photographs. Currently, there is little available for this age level about zebras. Both of these new titles should be welcome additions to any library collection. Cynthia M. Sturgis, Ledding Library, Milwaukie, Oreg.
