Children's LiteratureThis is a basic introduction to living science about the termite for beginning readers. Learn about what the termite looks like through physical descriptions with color close-up photos, along with how it lives within a colony and survives by eating dead wood. Also learn about how it can destroy homes and other physical structures because it does eat away the wood. Every chapter has a single sentence that is written in a simple context in oversized print to make it easier for the reader to focus on the meaning of the description without making it seem too basic. Included is a letter to parents which gives suggested guidelines, a table of contents, a glossary with detailed descriptions to help the reader better understand the word and context, list of books for additional reading, list of internet sites, and an added feature is word list combined with the index. The size of the book is perfect for small little hands to hold while reading about science. A wonderful addition for the library to assist in the beginning steps of research report writing. Part of the "Insect" series. 2003, Capstone Press, Ages 4 to 8.
