Sadly, there is no Table of Contents. This may not deter the casual reader, but it makes using this book with actual science lessons much more difficult. The only way I can really find a science topic is to thumb through the book, scanning words and hoping to stumble on the subject that we are learning, to find out whether the book will contain any applicable material. I'm sure that some weekend when I have time, I will probably have to sit down and make my own reference page to help with lesson planning, but it was not something that I realized I would have to do myself.
My kids still enjoy this book, and it's entertaining to see what Papa bear is up to. I will always love the Berenstain Bears. But I might consider a book that is easier for lesson planning in the future.
1: The Almanac: A Year in Bear Country. Four seasons, and then the 12 months. Facts about: snow, kites, wind, tornadoes, rain, the sun, thunder and lightening, and the moon.
2: Nature Guide: animals, plants, earth. Facts about frogs, possiums, birds, fish, trees, rocks, ladybugs, earthquakes, reporduction (VERY BASIC, no worries), mammals, insects, kinds of plants, and earth geology.
3: Science Fair: Machines and how they work, The science of Matter, Actual facts about energy, Projects and experiments (that young kids and tots can do), and Things to make.
The projects can be from age 2 (i.e. melting ice and solid, liquid, gas), up to age 6 or 7 (in my opinion).
The book is the size of a large coloring book. Very nice.
As a Mom I would've appreciated the site description being a bit more obvious that this book is a compilation of 3 previously released books instead of thinking it's something entirely new since the cover doesn't show that it's a compilation. Still I realized in looking over the description today that it's mentioned in two places so it's my fault I missed that! Just glad the books included aren't any that we already own!
