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 - Susan Hepler
Part of the "Look Once, Look Again" series, this title introduces the variety of tails and their functions in animals such as the mosquito larva, lemur, guppy, tadpole, pig, earwig, and chameleon. In a guessing-game format, each right-hand page introduces a feature with a single sentence clue, and the back of the page gives several sentences more while a second photography puts the feature in a larger context. Photographs are clean, clear, and well chosen. Extensive back matter includes a review identification quiz; a glossary of approximately fifteen words; activities which imply curriculum or adult supervision; a section on further study (with about half the recommended books selected from this publisher), and an index. A good discussion starter for animal study.
