This book is part of the "Science Behind" series that explores the science behind various core curriculum science topics. The topics covered in this book include the major factors behind life cycles that are involved in growth. These topics are defined, explored, and explained in graphic detail. Related diagrams, color photographs, fact boxes, and "Try It Yourself" activities supplement the text. The "Stay Safe" boxes tell how to keep yourself and your friends safe from harm. "In Your Day" boxes show how science is a part of your daily life. "Measure Up!" boxes provide fun facts and figures to think about. Related scientific words on each page are bolded and defined in a green box at the bottom of the page. A glossary summarizes these scientific terms and definitions. The "Find Out More" pages list books and websites about the science behind growth for more information. An index provides easy navigation through the text. The ten book series includes titles exploring Communication, Flight, Food, Heat, Homes, Plants, Sight, Sports, Weather, and Growth. Reviewer: Annie Laura Smith
