From Booklist:

Reviewed with Richard and Louise Spilsbury's A Rookery of Penguins.

Gr. 3-5. In these titles in the Animal Groups series, each one- or two-page section answers specific questions about the featured subject: "How Do Dolphins Find Food?" "Do Dolphins Talk to Each Other?" "How Do Penguins Care for Their Young?" "When Do Rookeries Form?" The texts are concise and informative, the explanations are easy to understand, and fact boxes supply more information. Especially noteworthy are the color photographs, which are not simply generic shots of the subject; they have been carefully chosen to illustrate very specific behaviors described in the text. Habitat maps, a glossary (words in the glossary are in bold print in the text), and a list of suggested titles for the children who want to delve deeper round out each book. Terry Glover
