Discover Science: Reptiles
A wonderful introduction to the huge range of reptiles that live on both land and in water. Packed with fascinating facts and vivid microphotography, Discover Science: Reptiles by Belinda Weber takes readers up close and personal with these perennial animal favorites! Hands-on activities and new vocabulary adds great educational value.
The Discover Science series will capture children's imagination while laying the foundation for future learning. With age-appropriate language and an eye-catching design, this series gives young readers answers to fundamental questions about the human body, animals, planet Earth and the Solar System. At the back of each book, science experiments, colorful craft activities and notes for parents and teachers will help every reader get creative as they learn.
Maybe it is my 'old age' as a homeschool mom, but it seems that most elementary science books are light on science information but overwhelmed with childish illustrations and story lines, which is the main reason I love this impressive series. Presenting each topic in a 2-page spread, children will be captivated by the vibrant illustrations and clearly explained scientific text. Adding to the educational value, the back of the book contains notes for parents and teachers, craft activities, quizzes, weblinks, fascinating facts, and other supplemental resources. From a secular publisher, occasional references to evolution are evident. Real educational content and meticulous graphic images, this series meets the growing needs of your young Scientist! 56 pgs. sc. ~ Deanne
