Series Made Simple; School Library Journal - Susan Shaver

"Each graphic-format title begins with a question (“Ever wonder what goes on at a fire station?”), and continues with minimal text and dialogue balloons. The simple, bold, and brightly colored cartoon drawings of the people, places, and animals involved in going to the dentist or taking a pet to the vet reveal many activities and tasks, helping ease the uncertainty and fear of a visit; while the other books will satisfy curious kids with their descriptions of the daily activities on a farm and the excitement of a fire call. Most characters appear pleasant, with the exception of some slightly scary drawings of masked faces on the cover and within Going to the Dentist, an otherwise excellent title that should be shared with an adult who can explain the images." - Series Made Simple; School Library Journal
