Series Made Simple; School Library Journal - June Shimonishi

"Radiant illustrations are paired with simple, perceptive sentences to underscore the impact of the loss of keystone species. Each book includes a clearly labeled, well-illustrated food chain that shows the relationships between different plant and animal species. In a very effective convention, extinct plants and animals are placed in silhouettes within many illustrations–the black void left by the loss of each species increases with every page. This outstanding series will engage readers on many levels." - Series Made Simple; School Library Journal

School Library Journal Curriculum - Viocki Reutter

"Environmentally conscious students can learn what would happen to the balance of wildlife in the tundra if just one animal became extinct. . . .The suggestion of the species impacted is powerful and can jumpstart discussions about the interdependence of animals and plants. Additional visuals to support the concept include a food web diagram, a world map of the lemming population, and reassurance that their numbers are thriving." - School Library Journal Curriculum
