PreS-Gr 2-This effective introduction presents, in a spacious format, four basic steps of growth for various plants and animals. A double-page spread is devoted to each creature or plant. Clearly numbered boxes contain uncluttered, full-color photographs and a simple sentence or two describing the specific changes that take place. Introductory sections invite readers to match the ``babies'' with their mothers. Most of them will be easily identified by young children, but answers are provided at the end of the book. A table of contents and index make information easily accessible. A visual treat for youngsters that teachers and parents will appreciate for its realistic presentation.-Diane Nunn, Richard E. Byrd Elementary School, Glen Rock, NJ

The Dorling Kindersley books are starting to look a lot alike, but they still look great. In this latest title, young children can watch the early step-by-step development of plants that grow from seeds, animals that hatch from eggs, and animals that have live births. It is the pristine photographs of the latter--ragged kittens, bald rabbits, furry puppies, and leggy foals--that will enchant the target audience. The section on fauna, more clearly written than that on flora, does a good job comparing the size, shape, and color of the offspring with that of their parents.
