A Nonfiction Science Series for Beginning Readers

Just try to keep these books on the shelves! Children can't resist "diving" into these brightly colored books to explore their favorite topics. Young scientists will examine plant parts and animal features "up close" and then turn the page to see how these smaller parts fit into the "bigger picture." Children will take a close-up view of the powerful ears of a bat, the thorny stem of a blackberry bush, the sticky tongue of a fly, and more. Also perfect for five-senses study, this 24-book series of books features outstanding photographs by renowned nature photographer Dwight Kuhn and easy-to-read text by award-winning children's author David M. Schwartz.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Often when something is looked at from a different angle, close up or without seeing the whole, it is not recognizable. In this book, kids are encouraged to look at what is briefly described and then to look again by turning the page. This book opens with a close up view of a bat's ear, turning the page reveals more information about the creature and its ear. Interesting facts about owls, frogs, mosquitoes, shrews, rabbits and grasshoppers make up the contents. Toward the end of the book, kids are once again presented with the images and asked to identify the animal--answers appear on the next page. There is a glossary, a page devoted to activities, an index, and list of additional books, videos and web sites (there are no publication dates given for the books and most of them are from the publisher--Gareth Stevens). Part of the "A Springboards into Science" series. 2000, Gareth Stevens, Ages 4 to 6, $19.93. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Here's an excellent way to introduce young children to animal adaptations. Look at a detailed close-up photograph of an animal's ear and read the clue provided. What animal does the ear belong to? Turn the page to discover the owner and how the ears are especially adapted to that animal's lifestyle. Related activities and a glossary are also included. Part of the "Springboards into Science" series. 2000, Gareth Stevens Publishing, $14.95. Ages 5 to 10. Reviewer: S. Kleven SOURCE: Parent Council Volume 8
