Reviews
What is a Rodent?

“The large, full-color photographs and illustrations that pepper every page of these books will catch the eye of browsers but it is the informative, easy-to-read texts that will hold their interest ...the language and organization of Kalman and Langille’s titles will draw even the most reluctant of readers.” —School Library Journal, 03/00 “The Science of Living Things ... books present precise scientific information in clear, colorful illustrations, photography and graphic organizers. Labels and bold-faced typography further enhance the text. Noteworthy, too, are the boxed background pictorials and graphic charts ... This series provides a wealth of science information for students from grades 3 upward. Highly recommended for librarians and teachers who assist students with science projects.” —Catholic Library World, 07/98
