“This well-written series is thorough in providing details … The problems containing conversion calculations–a necessary skill for students–are especially helpful. Readers will enjoy the fun facts that help them visualize measurements, such as ‘330 children, standing on top of one another, would reach the top of the Empire State Building!’”—School Library Journal
“The timely and topical books explain the ins and outs, history, and future of different areas of commerce and highlight successful people in the various fields … The set will be helpful for further research, for learning about an industry as a whole, and/or as an introduction to a study of economics.”—School Library Journal
“Beauty is a huge business, so this title fits neatly into the Big-Buck Business series. The slim, glossy volume does offer a lot of information … The photos … are bold, crisp, and glam, and invite readers in.”—Booklist Online
“The Great Outdoors set is a fantastic introduction to many popular outdoor activities, with titles about Rock Climbing, Camping, Hunting, Fishing, Caving, and Kayaking/Rafting. Each title in the series features attractive photos, a glossary of terms, tips, informative captions, and factoids. Do you want to learn how to do an ‘Eskimo roll’ in a kayak? Learn the history of the s’mores recipe? Debate the pros and cons of hunting? See what a mineral formation known as a ‘gypsum flower’ looks like? Learn which lure or bait to use for different fish? It’s all here in this series.”—Mackin Books in Bloom
“Rajczak directs readers’ eyes skyward to observe a variety of phenomena … the variations in layout and inclusion of informative fact boxes and captions make these volumes solid introductions.

Step-by-step reviews of how lightning, rainbows, and auroras form conclude the volumes on those topics, reinforcing what students have just read.”—School Library Journal
“Focusing on action and drama, these titles highlight the lives of Civil Rights heroes. The author makes effective use of the graphic-novel format … The texts of the comic-style sections are easy to follow … these titles offer an exciting look at important history in an appealing format.”—School Library Journal
