"These attractive and easy to read books offer excellent opportunities for beginning researchers to gain an understanding of the complexity of nature . . . Taken as a collection, it covers a wide range of species and conservation issues worldwide with enough diversity to appeal to all interests and to offer a broader picture to young readers of the critical state of the world's endangered animals. The series is worth placing on your library or home book shelves."
— CM Magazine on Earth's Endangered Animals
"Each book briefly but clearly explains the animal's habitat, physical characteristics, life cycle, diet, and other topics of interest to report writers. Threats to survival and efforts to overcome the obstacles are also addressed. Full-color photos . . . add visual interest and reinforce the points made in the texts."
— School Library Journal on Earth's Endangered Animals
"Attractively laid out, small, beautiful photographic inserts with informative captions extend the main texts . . . Excellent extensions to textbooks covering food chains, or they could be enjoyed on their own.
