Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 3–5
These well-written, well-organized books are visually appealing and fun to read. Clearly presented information covers such topics as the animals' uses throughout history, their relationship with humans, habitat, diet, and appearance. The first title informs readers that camel milk is considered to have healing powers and that camel racing is a sport. The second book describes the elephant's ability to learn commands and the dangers involved in working with the creature. Horses discusses how people work "in partnership with an animal that still retains many wild instincts." Full-color photographs will capture readers' attention and keep them turning pages to learn more. Camels and Elephants have maps with easy-to-use color-coded keys that show where the featured animals can be found. Elephants includes an additional "Elephant Fact File" that provides a two-page synopsis of "everything elephant."
