From School Library Journal:

These muddled introductions have little to offer. Each very briefly describes the basic physical and behavioral characteristics of its subject. Full-color photographs, interspersed with a few drawings, illustrate the texts on each page. The books are clearly written and well organized, but are marred by short, choppy sentences and a dull, repetitive vocabulary. The generally straightforward presentation of facts is frequently interrupted by the inclusion of short, fictionalized passages, usually scenarios of the animals being menaced by and escaping from predators. The illustrations vary in quality. Some of the photos are sharp and show good composition, but many more are undistinguished; the subjects are photographed from such a great distance that little can be seen. The drawings are mediocre and do not blend well with the photos. While the species depicted are usually identified in the text, this is not always the case, and the illustrations have no captions. Other titles are available on these animals, although on a slightly higher reading level. Lacey's The Complete Frog (Lothrop, 1989) and Lane's The Frog (Dial, 1981; o.p.) provide more detailed information on the physical and behavioral characteristics of frogs. Petty's Birds of Prey (Gloucester, 1987) includes similar data on eagles and is illustrated with large, sharp photographs. Arnold's Kangaroo (Morrow, 1987) presents more data on the characteristics of kangaroos and examines more than one species. Its color photos, many of which are close-ups, are excellent and imaginative. --Karey Wehner, San Francisco Pub . Lib .
