"Brilliant photographs and a well-written text make this book a must."

Book Buzz, October 2010

"A very useful, and information-packed addition to animal research libraries at upper elementary and middle schools."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, January 2011

". . . this is a solid series, and students might be surprised to discover so many complex and varied reasons behind the struggle to save some of the planet's most at-risk creatures."

School Library Journal, April 2010

"This is an excellent way to present a lot of information about one subject in an accessible manner; readers can dip in and out as they choose, but will likely read through the entire book. The writing style is straightforward and engaging, and the text includes an excellent mix of scientific information and interesting factoids."

Children's Literature

"Reluctant readers may be enticed by this series simply because of the great images. This set would make a substantial supplement to the science curriculum when studying endangered animals. Independent readers also will pick up individual books to read about animals in which they are interested."

Library Media Connection, March/April 2010

"This could be a very good book to use as a supplement to science curriculum while studying endangered animals."
