A noteworthy review of Habitats from Library Media Connection on November 1, 2014

Readers learn about different habitats in chapters with manageable amounts of information. The information is succinct and flows well from one topic to the next. There are smaller boxes dispersed throughout the text, which contain quick bits of additional information on the habitats being explored. Crisp captioned photographs fill one side of the page. Each book begins with a general definition about the habitat, and then readers discover where the habitats exist. General details about what the habitats look like, and a specific animal that lives within each habitat, follows. Chapters on the habitat’s weather and plants are included. The book ends with potential threats. The series offers a nice balance between images and text. Glossary. Websites. Tables of Contents. Index.

A noteworthy review of Habitats from School Library Journal on April 1, 2014

These books show just how diverse habitats such as prairies, forests, and deserts are, through spectacular full-page photos that show their breathtaking beauty and through informative captions and informational sidebars written in short, accessible sentences. Young readers can further examine the magnificence of specific animals’ environmental adaptations for survival by reading the chapters focusing on various animals (camel, octopus, piranha, and prairie dog, among others). This series elucidates the complex intricacies and the fragile balances needed to keep habitats sustainable, and the last chapter of each book discusses top threats. A solid choice.
