Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-5-These three titles use clear photographs, illustrations, charts, and short chapters to introduce students to their subjects. In the first title, Kalman clearly explains what food chains and webs are and discusses their different levels and/or types. Directions are given for a game that further explains the latter concept. Biome offers a map and discussion of the major types of ecological communities (grasslands, scrublands, desert, etc.). A final page notes how humans are jeopardizing these environments. No solutions are given. Life Cycle takes readers from birth to adulthood to the reproduction of plants and animals, including humans. Photographs show a sheep giving birth and millipedes mating. Visual representations of the circular pattern of the life cycle can be found throughout. These books will find a lot of use in schools and libraries.

Review

A wonderful resource for Science teachers to use to introduce food chains and webs. Book is well written and illustrated. Excellent photographs enhance the text -- Germaine Bouchard, Skowhegan, ME, Dec. 1998

The Science of Living Things series demonstrates that Bobbie Kalman and her staff have turned out yet another informative and finely produced series of books. . . . this whole series would make a welcome addition to the elementary school library -- Kay Lehr, Fort Rouge School, Manitoba, Jan. 1999 --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.

This puts everything I teach into one book for students to use. They get stuck on a topic and want to read all they can get their hands on. Perfect match to my curriculum.
