Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-5These series entries explain fairly complicated processes in nature, taking readers step-by-step through each cycle. The first book begins with single-cell organisms and then, following the sequence of evolution, focuses on fish, vertebrates, amphibians, birds, and mammals before ending with the appearance of humans. Each two-page spread contains several paragraphs of concise text balanced by colorful drawings and numerous, helpful captions. Metamorphosis explains how certain amphibians and insects transform themselves into another life form. It begins with mating and follows the creatures as they change from eggs and larvae to tadpoles and caterpillars, and then to their final states as frogs and butterflies. Both of these books are extremely appealing, with bright artwork and clear, straightforward texts.Melissa Hudak, North Suburban District Library, Roscoe, IL
