Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The Natural World is brought to life for young readers in this resource volume brimming with interesting facts that are enhanced by the true-to-life color illustrations on each page. This book is one of a series in the Blackbirch Press Visual Encyclopedia collection. Plenty of white space sets off the well organized text and visuals and creates the perfect balance for young reader's eyes. Vivid illustrations are explained and add detail to the text. A living-things category is divided into sections that are short but fact-filled. Plants and how they live, their seeds and fruits are covered from the smallest plant, phytoplankton, to the largest plant, the giant sequoias, which weigh over 2,205 tons. Animal biology, feeding, senses, movement, adaptation is revealed through text and illustrations. The human body section covers digestion, breathing, muscles and skeleton, the brain, hormones and reproduction. Interesting sidebars and detailed graphs and charts also enhance the text. This rich resource is one that should be on shelves in any library or classroom. Endnotes include a glossary and an index. Part of "The Blackbirch Press Visual Encyclopedia" series. 2002, Blackbirch Press/The Gale Group,
