From Kirkus Reviews:

This book will make children feel as if they have access to their own nature museum, with seven different US habitats on display: desert, grassland, alpine tundra, arctic, salt marsh, kelp forest, and swamp. For each habitat, Duncan (illustrator of Susan Cooper's Unseen Rainbows, Silent Songs, 1995, etc.) provides two introductory spreads of descriptions and small colored vignettes of typical plants and animals, and then presents a scenic spread of those same plants and animals in context. She is careful to note areas in which she took artistic license: by cramming so many species into one scene, and by portraying nocturnal and diurnal animals together. Readers will delight in locating dozens of creatures hiding and hunting in the landscapes; the realistic drawings are a trove of information to observe and digest. (map, glossary) (Picture book/nonfiction. 5-12) -- Copyright ©1996, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4?The uneven and inconsistent information presented here limits the use of this attractive volume. Lush double-page watercolor spreads painted in soft tones depict animals and plants living in seven different ecosystems. However, the scenes are not drawn to scale, and grasshoppers are as big as prairie chickens. Also, Duncan has admitted to taking "artistic license" to portray animals and plants in unnatural abundance and to show diurnal and nocturnal species together. In some instances, she provides textual details of an animal's size, food source, shelter; but in others, she describes its protection from predators and mating habits. With the abundance of superior nature books available for youngsters to explore, this title will not be missed.?Olga Kuharets, New York Public Library
