A Second Book of Canadian Animals
Animal books are a slam dunk choice in any public library youth collection. They are always popular, and I have weeded those books on condition more often than not. They simply wear out from use.
There is nothing particularly wrong with this book, other than the outdated language. The black and white illustrations aren’t as appealing as color photographs or illustrations. This book just looks dated. I am not sure references to Canadian animals makes any sense, especially since this is sitting in a Michigan public library. I find it kind of amusing that the publisher would use a political boundary rather than simply refer to these as North American animals. It’s not like these critters pay particular attention to a country’s borders. I am quite sure a few of these animals are able to slip in via the tunnel to Detroit or maybe on the west coast into Alaska.
This is an easy weed. Put it in the book sale and someone will pick it up for the nostalgia factor.
