Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 3-5

Five chapters in each book present simple explanations followed by a "Now I Know!" question that tests readers on the information presented. As well as explaining how honey is made, Bees describes how the insects help to pollinate flowers. Chameleons provides general information as well as a more detailed explanation of how lizards change color. Moon also discusses the planets in our solar system. Lastly, Spiders explains the differences between those bugs and other arachnids, and how and why they spin webs. One or two large, well-captioned color photographs are provided per spread. Each book concludes with an activity. Solid introductions.-Maren Ostergard, King County Library System, Issaquah, WA
