These new series entries are sure to attract browsers and students researching assignments. Each double-page spread consists of concise, yet lively and readable text and numerous excellent quality, full-color, captioned photographs, drawings, and diagrams. Technical words are defined in context, eliminating the need for a glossary. The history and types of currency around the world are explored in Money, including modern finances such as credit cards. Fish and Insects explore the anatomy, behavior, and ecology of those creatures, with a heavy emphasis on popular species, such as sharks. Fossil details how fossils are formed and what man has learned about life on Earth from discovering them. The sections on early paleontology, fossil folklore, and the tools of paleontology are particularly well done. Attractive additions to the nonfiction shelves. --Susan H.

Be aware that the cd included just has some very simple clip art that can be found free on the internet, so it really is just a gimmick "bonus feature".
It contains lots of basic information on plants, with interesting bits scattered everywhere.
The pictures are clean and beautiful.
The book comes with a Clip-Art CD, but doesn't even compare to actually looking inside the book. (Very low definition images.) It also comes with a nice folded-poster.
Still, overall a very worthwhile buy. I also purchased the 'Plant' book as well and it rates the same.
Purchased for $11.85, and got free 2-day shipping with my Amazon Student account.
Great addition to our home library. 5 stars.
I wrote the same review for the Plant book.
I wanted to expose them to all the little critters around the
yard at a very young age and what not to be afraid of when
outside playing. I do not want them to call all insects as
"bugs." It is good to start early and use the proper names
of all the little creatures in our yards.
