Eye-catching photographs of wild animals will engage young readers as they learn about the symbiotic relationships between animals. Unlikely pairings of animals who contribute to each other's well-being are detailed. The information addresses the Common Core Standards for reading informational text. Maps of the habitats of the animal pairs are found on each double-page spread; fun facts are sprinkled throughout. However, it is the large and illustrative photographs that make this series a worthwhile purchase. Before and after reading activities are included, as are extension activities. To best serve the needs of the intended audience, a photo glossary is located in the back of each book.
