These books introduce large mammals, covering physical characteristics and adaptations, diet, behavior, habitat, and care of young. The presentation is formulaic, but plenty of colorful photographs support the accessible texts, which include kid-pleasing details: "Hippos sprint faster than a human..."; camels' "pee is a thick syrup..." Each volume concludes with a "BIG Facts" spread providing readers with comparisons and additional information. Glos., ind. [Review covers the following Big Beasts titles: Camel, Dolphin, Hippo, Kangaroo, Lion, and Panda.] (c) Copyright 2016. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
