Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-A great deal of information is packed into these introductory volumes. Both are brightly colored and lavishly illustrated with high-quality, full-color photographs. Blocks of text, each one with its own heading, make the material accessible. The texts are a combination of useful facts and trivia emphasizing the more extreme aspects of the topic, adding to the appeal. Colorful charts make it easy for readers to grasp concepts. Conservation efforts are discussed and activities that combine hands-on experiments with suggested research topics are scattered throughout. Concluding "Your World, Your Turn" sections encourage readers to explore their local ecosystem and learn about the creatures that live there. Worthwhile additions for browsing and recreational reading.-Michele Capozzella, Chappaqua Public Library, NY Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
