Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The Animal Life Cycles series (6 titles) takes a commonly studied elementary science concept and makes it attractive with high-quality color photos of animals in their natural environments. The large photos work alongside short, straightforward text to describe each stage of an animal's development. Each volume opens with a quick introduction to the type of animal and its habitat, and includes several vibrant charts that depict a visual summary of the life cycle, as well as the animal's duration, size, and diet in each stage. Penguin explains these birds' eating habits as chicks and development into skilled fishers, as well as the molting of their down as they grow waterproof feathers. A glossary and list of resources conclude this solid, eye-catching series for beginning readers."
