Critter Crossings is a persuasive nonfiction book in which the author describes the dangers that animals face when trying to cross roads to find food or water, to migrate, or to find a mate. The book includes information on solutions that have been adopted in different parts of North America. A persuasive point is made: although these animal crossings are expensive, the number of lives saved-both of humans and other animals-makes the crossings worth the cost. Will you agree or disagree? Photographs and a chart support the text.
