From School Library Journal:

Gr 1-2-An uninspired "Level 2" reader about desert life that reads like a dry encyclopedia entry. Levinson begins with a tangential, and confusing, reference to polar deserts before presenting shotgun descriptions of the various indigenous flora and fauna that populate California's famously inhospitable desert. Leading questions are answered with a fact or two. An appendix includes silhouette identifications of some of Hearn's cutesy pastoral colored-pencil images. Individual plants and animals are labeled throughout but the type is too small and too often blends in with the pictures. Elsa Posell's Deserts (Children's, 1982; o.p.) is a much better introduction to this topic.-John Sigwald, Unger Memorial Library, Plainview, TX
