There's a lot of information about coyotes and predators tucked into this gentle story of wilderness exploration. Bit by bit, the two young stars of Coyote's Wild Home -- Coyote Pup and Diana -- each learn about their environment from their loving, instructive older family members. And Paul Mirocha's nearly photo-realistic illustrations will draw young readers in.

Environmental messages come through seamlessly, like when the unseen narrator says of the coyotes, "They moved to this mountain last winter after their forest home was cut down to build houses. They're still learning what they can find in this new forest to feed their family in every season." Back matter offers "Facts about Coyotes and How You Can Help Them Survive."

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
