Children's LiteratureOne in the continuing 'Spyglass' series about social studies and science designed for early readers, this book deals with the human life cycle. Color photos of contemporary, diverse families enhance the sensitive, brief discussion of conception, intrauterine development, birth growth stages and death. The limited text features vocabulary based on "Guided Reading" principles. Useful as an introduction to the life cycle, readers will need additional sources of information for greater understanding. A glossary, index, additional resources and two pages of facts on various animal life cycles are included. 2004, Compass Point Books, Ages 6 to 8.
