Some of the information in this book about symbiosis is conveyed through poetry. Poems are paired with vivid illustrations that add detail. At times the symbiotic relationship between poem and illustration is too dependent. - Library Media Connection
Each on a double-page spread, thirteen brief poems offer silly interpretations of animals' symbiotic relationships...paired with back matter explaining the scientific concept and differentiating between mutualism, commensalism, and parasitism, they are mildly entertaining vehicles for the information. - Horn Book Guide
Animal Partners is filled with short whimsical poems about the beneficial or parasitic relationships different species of animals have with one another. - Midwest Book Review

Besides offering well written descriptions of these selfless acts, rhyme and humor are used to captivate readers of all ages. This works very well for this subject.
Just when you thought these pages couldn't possibly deliver any more positive attributes, BANG! You get overtaken by the beauty and just-detailed-enough exceptional illustrations. The colors and textures are the best we've seen in a children's book in 2014. Just enough of humor in the picture story, while also delivering just enough true realism. Even the locations appear to be well thought out. The pages will prove captivating to all, especially in true print form (book).
