"This series covers a variety of topics related to animals: their food, homes, noises, shapes, and markings, as well as the things they make. A question-and-answer approach is used to present the information. A question is posed on the front side of a page, and the answer to it is on the back of that page. Additional fun facts about the topic are also included on the answer page. The "Just for Fun" page at the end of each book includes riddles, recipes, and construction projects related to the topic. Also at the end of each book are pages with more fun facts, a glossary, a bibliography, a list of Web sites, and an index. The reading level of the text moves from what is appropriate for an emergent reader to that of an independent reader and back again. Therefore, the books are great for shared reading activities between first- or second-grade readers and students in upper grades. A primary school classroom library or science center would be the best place to put the books in this series." - Science Books & Films

Booklist - Gillian Engberg

"PreS-Gr. 2. These charming titles in the Whose Is It? series combine simple, rhythmic, question-and-answer text with bright collage artwork to introduce basic facts about animals. In Food, a page featuring a question such as “Whose food is this, so green and lush?” is followed by another spread that provides the answer: “This is a giant panda’s bamboo.” More information about the animal’s feeding habits follows, printed in large type, while additional “fun facts” appear in an inset box printed in smaller type. House presents common animal habitats--an arctic hare’s nest, a beaver’s lodge. Young listeners will delight in chanting along with the recurring question in each book, while the eye-catching, textured artwork, reminiscent of Nancy Elizabeth Wallace’s collages, will draw children easily into the animal worlds. An activity, more facts, and suggestions for further learning close these fine titles for classroom use or lap sharing." - Booklist
