Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Each book in the Animal Look-Alikes series examines two creatures with similar appearances and teaches readers how to tell them apart through comparison and contrast. An introductory section presents the group or family to which each animal pair belongs, citing shared features before addressing differences in the subjects' features (form and function), size, diets, habitats, and ranges. With the exception of Butterflies and Moths, a Where in the World? spread appears in each volume, positioning the featured animals on a color-coded world map. The uncluttered layout uses colorful page borders and crisp photos, often captioned or labeled, that successfully illustrate the text. Alligators and Crocodiles shows how these reptiles can be differentiated by their snout shapes and coloring. A word on the importance of protecting animals closes each volume. These informative books come with an irresistible hook and well-organized content, though having supplemental information on animal classification is recommended.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2018 Booklist"
