    Books about animals have nearly universal appeal—especially when the spotlight is placed on the wild families that make up the natural world. Spotlight on Nature is tailored for readers wanting to know more about their favorite creatures than a simple picture book or encyclopedia article can tell them, and the narrative feature interspersed throughout the informational text will attract fans of classic nature shows. Each title also underscores the importance of conservation, pointing out where people can see the animal in both captivity and the wild. A detailed chronology of developmental milestones drives this life study of penguins, including their habitats, physical features, and conservation measures taken to protect these flightless marine birds.
