"Top 10 Biomes Series. Concentrating on climate, these detailed titles discuss how plants, animals, and people have adapted to living in each biome. Accompanied by numerous maps and photos, they also underscore natural resources, threats posed (particularly by human impact), and ways to protect them." - Booklist

NSTA Recommends - Carmen Kardoukus, Teacher

"Desert Climates stands out because it highlights specific deserts around the globe. The format is engaging and interesting and the text is split up into small, readable sections. There are numerous boxes with “Amazing Facts” and “Did you Know?” tidbits as well as fun uses of arrows to highlight photos of people, animals, industry, and terrain. I could see fourth to sixth grade teachers utilizing this book for an integrated project within an elementary classroom or teachers of mixed grade levels enjoying this resource. . . .I would recommend this book due to its kid–friendly layout and design, integration possibilities, as well as the potential for use in numerous areas of science study." - NSTA Recommends

School Library Journal - Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University Library, Mankato

"While addressing impacts of climate change, habitation destruction, and exploitation of natural resources, Senker offers suggestions to slow or minimize damage. The author also raises questions that could spark discussion, such as the benefits and drawbacks of tourism. Stimulating selections, a first choice for most collections." - School Library Journal
