Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 4-6
These books introduce basic scientific concepts. They also help readers to focus on specific features of the objects to be observed, such as positions of planets and stars, or the shapes of leaves and trees. Each title includes lists of facts, such as the time needed for each planet to rotate around the sun. The scope is international, showing the night sky above and below the equator and examples of trees from all continents. The illustrations combine vivid color photographs, diagrams of constellations or the physiology of trees, and color renderings of the night sky and of tree anatomy. The layout, which is dense with information, uses varied print styles to help readers focus on relevant information. The one error, an arrow pointing from the text to the wrong image of a tree, is not serious, as the image is easy to match with the correct description. Equally, the occasionally slightly awkward placements of modifiers (the book is a translation) do not create serious confusion. By themselves, these field guides would be insufficient to help young observers, but they complement the many other books available on these topics.
