From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5-Each title starts out with a spread that explains what and where the Arctic region is then breaks off into its featured topic. Maps show where the creatures live. The texts are presented in a large font and the sentences are short. Spreads have different colored backgrounds, a layout that works well, except when black print is superimposed on dark blue. "Uncovered!" text boxes reveal additional information ("Snowy owls migrate if food becomes hard to find. They also migrate if the weather gets too cold or snowy"). The captioned photos display many clear action shots (e.g., a snowy owl about to pounce on a hapless rodent). Only a few photos are gory-such as one of a polar devouring a seal. A "Wow!" page finishes off each volume with a few more facts. Despite the busyness, this series is terrific for students interested in animals. α(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal.

Review:

"The texts are simple and clear enough for newly independent readers. The few difficult words such as "arboreal" are printed in a different color and defined in the text and/or glossary. Appealing, full-color photographs, as well as a few drawings, appear on almost every page. These titles would be most useful for satisfying the curiosity of children with questions about these creatures."
