Introductions to animals of the wild. In each volume, spreads pair eye-catching color photographs with a few simple sentences in large font. Potentially unfamiliar words are shown in different colors and are defined in the back matter's "Words to Know." While the set does not go into extensive detail, it does a good job of covering the basics of each animal's habitat, diet, physical description, and social interactions. The titles conclude with close-up photographs of the subjects with labeled body parts. The rhythmic text lends itself nicely to being read aloud, and the crisp layout offers a solid opportunity to start introducing nonfiction features. - School Library Journal
