Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Attractive layout, clean design, and intriguing close-up photos will lure browsers to these explorations of plant and animal life cycles. - School Library Journal

Written at approximately a fourth to fifth-grade level, the text provides an elementary but fascinating look at the life cycle... The magnified photos are sure to attract the young reader as they gain an up-close look at the life stages... These full-page photos with captions support a large text so the books can be accessible to younger readers as well.. The books in this series would be excellent for supporting National Science Standard C: Life Science-Life Cycles of Organisms. - National Science Teachers Association

School Library Journal
K-Gr 3—Attractive layout, clean design, and intriguing close-up photos will lure browsers to these explorations of plant and animal life cycles. Curiously, the indexes do not include references to the photos even though the visuals and captions provide relevant information. Because of the many extant titles on these topics, collections may not need the entire set. For example, Bellwether Media's "Blastoff! Readers: Life Cycles" titles have a smaller format but clear explanations of life stages of a butterfly, bee, frog, and ladybug. Outstanding photo-illustrated introductions to butterflies and frogs by Nic Bishop and others also serve browsers although they may not concentrate directly on life cycles. The oversize format of Riggs's titles will be especially effective for group sharing followed by individual exploration. Select those volumes that will update or enhance collections as needed.
