From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-8 Outstanding color photographs dominate this addition to the series. Five sections by different authors (whose qualifications are not given) discuss hidden animals shelters: year-round hideaways, hibernation shelters, those used only for raising young, permanent underground dwellings, and animal ``hotels'' such as burrows and cacti used by several species. The text places animals in each category, with a paragraph or two on the shelter and the animal's habits that relate to locating, building, and using it. Examples are drawn from a variety of environments throughout the world. The book's layout makes the already dry text somewhat disjointed, because long captions on each page and double-page spreads of pictures interrupt the flow. However, the fascinating topic and stunning photographs will delight children who have an interest in nature. The photographs put the book in a class above similar titles such as Elswit's Animal Homes (Western, 1984) which discusses some of the same shelters. Back matter includes an extensive reading list that distinguishes between children's and adults' books, and an inadequate index. Kathleen Odean, formerly at San Rafael Pub. Lib., Calif.
