From School Library Journal
Grade 2-4?Basic facts, large print, and easy-to-read texts make these titles appealing. Double-page spreads are devoted to such topics as food, homes, bodies, defense, and the animals' interactions with people. Full-color naturalistic drawings are detailed and appropriately placed. Cutaway diagrams illustrate special anatomical features. In addition, an interesting trivia box appears in the upper right-hand corner of each spread. The material is well organized and generally accurate, with the exception of an inaccurate statement in Wild Dogs. A picture caption reads: "African hunting dog (or hyena)." Hyenas fall into a different family, Hyaenidae, which are more closely related to cats than to dogs. Nevertheless, these books will provide clear, accessible information for young report writers.?Lisa Wu Stowe, Great Neck Library, NY
