"This informative text provides a solid introduction to the wonders of the Galapagos Islands. Early chapters describe the formation of the islands, their discovery by European explorers, and the visits by Darwin and other sailors that led to the discovery of how unique they are. Several chapters chronicle the unusual birds and animal species that live there, such as giant tortoise, pink iguana, and blue-foot booby. Explanatory pages for concepts such as ownership and habitats of the Galapagos and tectonic plates are interspersed. As with the rest of the series, the length is just over one hundred pages and illustrations are black and white line drawings. However this volume contains a bonus full color pull-out poster of four island animals and a map. A final chapter deals with protecting the Galapagos. The author does a fine job of conveying a sense of wonder and instilling a desire to preserve this unique global treasure. " said.

"Learning is always fun with this series. I liked learning about the creation of the Galapagos Islands and how it was populated and interestingly that people live on a few of the islands now! I appreciated the last few chapters that included warnings about the environmental issues paired with human traffic and the stupidity of some explorers releasing non-indigenous animals who then tear up the landscape. I enjoyed the profiles of several of the animals as well and the explorers who came to learn about the islands and then the islands that made Darwin famous.

Always a neatly organized series of books that teach me something.
