Kirkus Reviews

“. . .an enlightened look at an array of endangered species that range across the globe.”
Kirkus Reviews

School Library Journal

“The poems, which can add depth and interest to a school unit or research report, make these titles [Forests & Jungles and Grasslands & Deserts] 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.”
