TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, September 2011

". . . these dual profiles of common creatures should give budding naturalists an increased understanding of how scientists use appearance and behavior to classify sometimes-similar living things . . . Consider these books to lay groundwork for nature expeditions and for later studies of taxonomy."

School Library Journal, April 2011

"What makes this series so outstanding is the excellent close-up photography. Readers can easily see the differences between the animals without being bogged down by overwhelming text. These high quality books would be a welcome addition to an elementary animal science collection. They will be appreciated by animal lovers browsing the collection and classroom teachers presenting a beginning lesson on animal biology. A creative language arts teacher might even employ these volumes in a unit on opposites/antonyms and synonyms, drawing parallels from the animal world."
