Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4-Sketchy but adequate introductions. Bird includes many full-colored labeled drawings of different species with descriptions of their homes and habits. State birds are listed, and chapters discuss songs, banding, migration, and provide tips for beginning bird-watchers. Activities include making a milk-carton birdhouse and a plastic-bottle feeder. Plant covers groups and parts, pollination, defenses, etc. Most topics include directions for a project or activity. "Looking at lawns," for example, suggests that readers examine a small patch of grass with a magnifying glass and note the variety of plants and creatures they see. State flowers are included, as are poisonous and endangered plants. In both books, double-page chapters are accompanied by bright, decorative, and sometimes useful illustrations; both have suggestions for caring for the animal or plant life in our ecosystem.
