Reviews

Science Books & Films

“The outstanding feature of these books [Grasslands & Deserts and Forests & Jungles] is their excellent paintings that capture the personality of the species portrayed.” —Science Books & Films

School Library Journal

“The poems, which can add depth and interest to a school unit or research report, make these titles [Grasslands & Deserts and Forests & Jungles] more readable. Two titles that are well suited for class discussion on habitats, endangered animals, and conservation.” —School Library Journal

Science and Children

“One of the strengths of this series [Vanishing from] is the variety of animals covered. . . each book in this series will be a wonderful addition to any school library.” —Science and Children
