Overview

Learning about science requires action! The stunning color photographs in these books capture children's attention, making them eager to listen to the books being read and then to go back and read them again on their own.

Fascinating facts, easy-to-read text, and an illustrated glossary combine to encourage students to think about what they are reading. With thinking comes comprehension—and knowledge!

Supporting notes for parents and teachers suggest activities to reinforce understanding. The notes also provide useful tips to ensure that both reluctant and eager young scientists gain knowledge of and appreciation for the wonderful world of animals.

All books in the series measure 91/2" x 81/4".

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Part of the "QEB Start Writing" series, this early reader introduces factual concepts that broaden scientific knowledge and entertain. Written in an easy-to- follow format, each page is complemented with amazing photographs of our solar system and clearly-defined illustrations. The use of simple analogies (such as the warmth of a campfire and how it compares to the warmth of the sun) provides a real sense of the sun's solar magnitude. Highlighted terms throughout the text are complemented with an illustrated glossary that helps reinforce newly-learned concepts. The use of a Parents' and Teachers' notes page is also a great way of expanding the reader's imagination with questions regarding factual content. This is a wonderful resource for beginning writers to use in either a classroom or home setting. 2004, QEB Publishing Inc, Ages 5 to 8.
