The soft textures used in the illustrations work together with the text, revealing a truth children can grow on. . . . Morris has created an eye-opening introduction to animals in the northern and southern hemisphere: it’s not to be missed.
—School Library Journal (starred review)
The author of this book takes the reader through the months of the year with beautiful illustrations of wildlife set against text describing their habitats, life cycles, diet, and other information such as their conservation status. . . . This book could be connected to the classroom curriculum throughout the school year. As the seasons change, it would be interesting to see what is happening to animals in another hemisphere and could be especially useful for helping students understand the seasonal differences of the hemispheres.
