From Booklist:

Gr. 4-7. The authors, familiar for their well-researched, clearly written, topical books for middle- and high-school students, turn their attention this time to lyme disease. Without sensationalizing, they discuss the history of the illness, the biology of the tick that carries it, treatment, and prevention, including up-to-date information on the vaccines now being developed. The layout is attractive and uncluttered, with interesting sidebars and plenty of colorful photographs. Some photos seem generic, but the enlarged pictures of ticks will attract lots of middle-graders. A time line, a glossary, a bibliography of both children's and adult books, and a comprehensive, student-oriented list of organizations and Web sites will be helpful for reports as well as for answering medical questions.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-These clearly written, well-organized books present a well-rounded account of the rodeo, focusing on its history, the animals, and the people. Colorful photographs enhance readers' understanding of the material presented. Lists of rodeo stars and associations are included in each title. Ropers and Riders covers calf roping, team roping, and steer roping. In Steer Wrestling, readers learn that this event was invented by Bill Pickett, an African-American cowboy, in the early 1900s. Welcome! gives an overview and history of the rodeo, with a brief description of each event. Chapters are devoted to the animals and the steps taken to insure their safety. Cowgirls are included in all three books. Interesting and informative additions.
