Review:

"Middle grade animal lovers seeking report topics will want to know about these slim volumes in the new Animals with Jobs series...these are lively introductions to specialized topics that will grab student interest. Numerous photographs of varying quality further support the material."
-- Booklist (April 2002) (Booklist 20020401)

"Each volume in this series describes the characteristics of the animal that make it suitable for the work to be done. All of the books will be useful for reports and helpful as career studies for students thinking of working with animals. Recommended."

-- School Library Journal (March 2002) (School Library Journal 20020301)

"...Quotes add depth to the text and photographs on nearly every page explore the topic visually...All of the books will be useful for reports and helpful as career studies for students thinking of working with animals. Recommended."

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-Each of these slim titles showcases working animals. Actors outlines the use of animals in movies and on television. Chapters on training and care (both on and off the set) are included, as is a section on how the American Humane Association monitors the treatment of these creatures. In Therapists, Presnall outlines how horses and horseback riding can be therapeutic for both physically and emotionally disabled people. Photos clarify the text and depict the equipment commonly used. In both books unfamiliar vocabulary is printed in bold and clearly defined in the glossary. Chapter titles and headings are printed in a red or blue, making it easy for readers to browse through the chapters for specific information. Both books have eye-catching covers, a notes section, and a list of organizations to contact for additional information. These volumes could be integrated into book displays featuring animal awareness issues for "Prevention of Animal Cruelty" month in April, "Be Kind to Animals" week in May, or for any other library event that has an animal or pet-care theme. They are also likely to be of interest to animal lovers.
