The series is rich with interesting details that support examination and curiosity.The program maintains educational integrity while remaining entertaining to its target age group with such devices as intercutting facial close ups of a gorilla and a chimp as reaction shots, a narration that often addresses animals instead of the human audience, and a wonderfully whimsical musical score. Visuals, not facts, lead the content. The use of clear and colorful graphics is excellent as support for concept clarity. Size comparisons are done in silhouette, typical in state adopted textbooks and the global map with highlighted ranges elephant species is necessary for geographic context at the 13 to 16 year old age range.
