From School Library Journal:

Gr 1-3--Gibbons briefly describes the formation and characteristics of deserts around the world. Average-quality full- color illustrations depict the flora and fauna that thrive in this harsh environment, but no distinction is made between the plants and animals found in the American West and those of the other desert areas. This may cause a great deal of confusion. The author makes mention of some of the natural resources that have been found "under desert floors," but again doesn't cite specific locations. The lifestyle of desert people is touched upon, but there is no indication as to which continents these nomads might roam. Unfortunately, the focus and scope of this book are just too broad for it to be an effective introduction.
