What People Are Saying

“Hecht’s playful narrative style livens the baldly delivered lesson, as do a handful of challenging words that are not only defined by context and in a glossary in the back, but matched to equivalents in five languages.”

—Booklist

“This easy reader chapter book has short, easy sentences with occasional alliteration. The illustrations have a pleasing palette. Includes facts about the animals and a glossary.”

—Youth Services Book Review

“This easy reader chapter book has short, easy sentences with occasional alliteration. The illustrations have a pleasing palette. Includes facts about the animals and a glossary.”

—Lost in Storyland

“[The Brigade] discovers different isn’t bad, it’s just an opportunity to discover something or someone new! A great book on acceptance, tolerance, and inclusion.” 

—Story Monsters

“Comparable to the ‘I Can Read’ and ‘Step Into Reading’ series that often feature plenty of superheroes, this will provide a nice change of topic - learning about the habits of nocturnal animals. (I liked how the book often used the characteristics of each animal to convey personality as well) in an easily packaged format. Also provides a glossary of sight words in other languages too!”

— Kid Lit Exchange

“A delightful read that teaches young children that differences are what makes us all special. Beautifully written with eye-catching illustrations that will entertain kids while teaching a valuable lesson.”
