The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based booklist available as an online-only Bulletin feature. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

Take a Walk on the Wild Side: A Wildlife Dozen
--selected by Debra Mitts-Smith

This month's Dozens, which features wildlife, provides an alternative to one of summer's most popular tourist attractions, zoos. The pages of these nonfiction titles are filled with vivid images of some of the Earth's most exotic creatures. Some titles on this list explain how animals live, including where they sleep and their social structures. Others show the various ways in which humans work to preserve animals and their habitats. So if you have readers who like to hang out in the 590s, here is list of titles they will want to track down!
