Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Kids are always going to capture bugs in jars and chase lizards into the weeds, not because they're cruel but because they're curious. The Animal Look-Alikes series funnels this curiosity into teachable moments by providing young ones with the tools to look at these animals with a scientific eye. As is typical for the Lightning Bolt brand, the pages are a panoply of primary-color backgrounds, with colorful text creatively arranged around vivid pictures. Can You Tell a Cricket from a Grasshopper? is the most helpful title, because there's plenty of these insects around for kids to scrutinize. How long are those antennas? Do they sing at day or during the night? Structural consistency keeping one animal on the left page, the other on the right would have helped with clarity, but these are enjoyable lessons nonetheless, and the Who Am I? quizzes included in the back matter are especially apropos.--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2010 Booklist"
