Summary

Just like humans, alligators affect everything surrounding them. Despite this importance, the alligator was near extinction. Read and find out about how alligators are more than monster reptiles.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "\rtf1\ansi\deff0Information and illustration work well together in this picture-book presentation about alligators, their history, and their contribution to a unique ecosystem. After quickly tracing the ancestors and relatives of the alligator from the Jurassic period to the present, the author explains that during the dry season in Florida, alligators seek out damp muck and thrash about until they create a gator hole. As water seeps in from below, the hole draws many species of animals. The alligator is known as a keystone species, without which this particular ecosystem would not exist. The text also presents the dramatic story of how alligators were brought to the brink of extinction before making a remarkable comeback. The book concludes with a simple activity, making a model of a gator hole, and a page of Gator Facts. Simplified yet not anthropomorphized, the clearly delineated paintings feature alligators and other animals as the focal points of well-composed scenes. Another well-designed, effective presentation from the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science series. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2006 Booklist"
