Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2005 Fall)
Early readers will appreciate large, well-spaced typeface over full-page Wildlife Conservation Society photos in these fact-filled, well-organized narratives. Simple page layout aids focus on the subject matter--gorillas in families and at play, and whales as the earth's largest water mammals--each studied and appreciated by scientists, and both "[needing] our help to survive."

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2005 August)
Gr 1-3-Using simple sentences, Thomson explains the basic facts of gorilla life, including their behavior, diet, and habitat. The author devotes a lot of space to the similarities shared by these animals and humans, highlighting how gorillas are part of a family, play with their children, and communicate. The last section describes how scientists study these primates and emphasizes the destruction of their habitat and the need to protect them from harm. While the readable text is presented in large print, it is somewhat dense, often filling the pages. Also, some of the full-color photos are not very well reproduced. For example, a wonderful image of a mother and baby interacting is blurry. This book has a very specific message and will provide newly independent readers with a solid introduction.-Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
