School Library Journal (Series Made Simple)

Each title in this series describes animal groupings and explores how the members benefit. For example, kangaroo mobs facilitate safety, child rearing, and grooming. One short paragraph per page explains a different key aspect of the social construct, accompanied by a large photo that usually fits the text just right. Simple, useful diagrams visually demonstrate specific concepts like bat echolocation. Several “Did you know?” insets per book provide additional facts that are interesting and relevant. Captions identify some of the species shown in photos, but most are not named. The writing is direct and well organized. Broader facts about behaviors are presented within the context of group living. There’s just the right amount of information and strong visual support for a reader new to the topic. ­VERDICT A fine choice for mid-elementary school age learners.
