"Introduces the many types of eyes found in the animal kingdom, including those of the dragonfly, adder, gorilla, lynx, and vulture, and tells how animals use their unique eyes to survive. From The Critics School Library Journal Gr 2-4-How do animals view each other and the world around them? How do they see? The book is organized by eye type, description, or kind of vision: "Compound Eyes," "Antenna Eyes," "Underwater Eyes," etc. A wide variety of mammals, birds, reptiles, and other creatures are introduced. The brief text consists only of captions and includes just a few facts about the kind of vision these animals have. There is no explanation as to how these different types of eyes work. This profusely illustrated book includes lots of close-up photographs; each two-page chapter has a large, full-color photo facing three or four smaller shots of different animals. While there is not enough information for reports, this title will suffice for browsing. - Jacqueline Elsner, Athens Regional Library, GA "

"Part of the "Look Once, Look Again" series, this title introduces the variety of features that appear in the eyes of crabs, fish, frogs, starfish, cats, and geckos. In a guessing-game format, each right-hand page introduces a feature with a single sentence clue, and the back of the page gives several sentences more while a second photography puts the feature in a larger context. Photographs are clean, clear, and well chosen. Extensive back matter includes a review identification quiz; a glossary of approximately fifteen words; activities which imply curriculum or adult supervision; a section on further study (with at least half the books recommended from this publisher), and an index. A good discussion starter for animal study. " Susan Hepler
