"A meerkat is a mammal. All mammals have some hair on their bodies and feed their babies milk. Meerkats are about the size of large squirrels. They belong to a group of mammals called mongooses." The meerkat, in the mongoose family, are endearing little mammals that stand up tall to peer at the world, dangling their long front claws. The gray brown mammals are introduced to the reader in chapters that answers the chapter heading question. The book covers the description of meerkats, their activities day and night, food, babies, predators, and homes in simple language. The book’s large, up-close photographs support the text on each page. Back matter includes a body map page with labels, a picture glossary, book and website recommendations, and an index in its 24 pages. The cover illustration shows a group of meerkats standing up and one has its mouth wide open, showing the pink tongue. This picture should attract kids to the book and the text will keep them reading." - Simply Science Blog

School Library Journal - Stephanie Farnlacher

"From the scary-looking giant hairy desert scorpion to the "let’s get one" baby meerkat, the engaging full-color photographs are key to these well-organized books. Basic information about the animals is provided, including where they live, what they look like, what they eat, and their predators. Basic global maps show where the animal is found, and a diagram called a "body map" labels its parts. The texts are appropriate for the age group, and the pictures will draw in youngsters. Excellent purchases if material is needed on these animals." - School Library Journal
