Reviews

"A delightful, illustrated field guide for young readers. In spreads with realistic color drawings, information is paced out through blocks of text paired with images, spacing tidbits throughout... an inspiring guide for budding scientists and those with a special interest in animals. Highly recommended and has great value in library collections, especially where schools have STEM programs focused on conservation." --SLJ

Praise for the Young Zoologist series:
"What makes this series stand out is that the illustrations, bite-sized facts, and clear labels make it easy for the youngest of readers to navigate the text and absorb the information there." -- Booklist

"The well-illustrated Young Zoologist series guides readers through the lives and notable features of the spotlighted animals... prepares the young zoologist (aka the reader) for their upcoming adventure in the field, laying out tools necessary for investigating the animal. The bright, semi-realistic artwork could hold these titles on its own, but the easily digestible facts regarding life cycle, behavior, and conservation make the volumes well rounded. Each work is pragmatic in addressing the challenges these creatures face while helping aspiring zoologists learn ways to protect animals and their environments." --Booklist
