School Library Journal
Following a precise format, each title is divided into several two- or three-page chapters. The text in the first chapter of each book ("What Is a Life Cycle?") is identical except for the necessary vocabulary specific to each topic. The font is appropriate for younger readers. A high-quality color photo appears on almost every page, though some (especially those depicting machinery) are somewhat dated. Captions usually add to the text. Though it is a versatile plant, the soybean featured in Beans is an unusual choice. Chickens contains a grammatical error, while all of the titles have an annoying habit of beginning sentences with "and." These books are not wonderful, but they are acceptable additional purchases.
