Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The world of science is brilliantly brought to life for young readers and researchers through interesting text and vivid color illustrations in Natural Science. The perfect balance of easy-to-read text and visuals make each page of the encyclopedia a true feast for the mind and eye. This volume presents information on world biomes by sections that include the rain forests, savannas, deserts, grass lands, woodlands, oceans and river lands. These sections include further divisions by climates, hot, temperate and cold. Information and illustrations include animals of the region, flora and fauna and their relationships to each other. In the hot environment of the savanna lions are the top predators, but even insects are critical in this complex biome. Dung beetles are the cleaners in this habitat and do their job by removing animal dung on which they feed and lay their eggs. The section on oceans offers a wealth of information on this resource that makes up 71 % of our earth's surface. A section on people and the environment reveals the critical consequences of man's role in caring for our world. This excellent resource also contains a glossary and index. This is a most important reference book for schools and libraries. Part of "The Blackbirch Press Visual Encyclopedia" series. 2002, Blackbirch Press/The Gale Group,
