What is the difference between living and nonliving things? Living things breathe, eat, grow, and may move (coral moves and other living things may have moving parts but plants do not move in the way we think of animals and people moving). Rocks are nonliving. If they move, it is due to the action of water, wind, or people. The closing pages contain a glossary, two additional books to read, and a reference to FactHound to learn more at various Internet sites. There is an index, information useful to reading teachers, and another note at the front of the book that states "The Nature Basics set supports National Science Standards related to earth and life science." Excellent photographs and illustrations and a clear writing style make this an attractive early reader. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
