Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2012 Spring)
These leveled readers offer very basic information about the title animals. Clearly delineated headings introduce each subtopic (e.g., "What Is a Pony?"). Simple sentence structures, along with corny jokes ("On which day do cheetahs eat their prey? Chewsday!"), excellent well-captioned photos, and sidebars, increase accessibility. Glos.
