Product Details


Product Description

From School Library Journal

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. Williamson, Homer-Center School District, PA

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Educationl Text March 3 2001
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I'm a teacher and I find the Eyewitness books highly educational. I like the way the concepts are presented in a form without backgrounds. This gives clear facts to the reader without over taxing the attention span. The books are highly informative, presenting difficult concepts in comprehendable chunks that stimulate interest. I have almost the whole collection for my own children and they LOVE them!

4.0 out of 5 stars Even our 23 Month Old Likes It April 19 2005
By JasonJMP - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
My son was covering "bugs" in preschool, so I picked up this book. Knowing it was going to be really for older kids, I wasnt sure he was going to like it. These books are so well designed however that for 2 weeks now, he requests the "bug" book every night before bed. The only problem is that the pictures are so detailed and zoomed in that some of the images gives my wife and I the heebeegeevees.

The other great thing, is that this book will be a great book from him to grow into.

We are picking up more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for 8 year olds Oct. 15 2006
By Lanling Wolff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Both my children, 5 and 2 love this book and all the others that we have purchased in this series. The pictures are fantastic and the text informative. Depending on which child I read to, I either just point at the picture and tell them what it is or read them some of the text. My older child is fascinated at even the most detailed information...not that many kids that age know how to say and describe metamorphosis (in fact I couldn't remember the word now and I ran to ask my son what it was!) but mine does. Later, when they can read, I know that they are going to love going to even more detail by reading the books themselves. And when my children ask me questions, then these books are great to look up answers you don't know. These books are excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific introduction to insects for young readers Dec 7 2008
By Steven A. Peterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Most Eyewitness Books begin with a definition or perspective on the subject of the specific book. This one, an introduction to insects, begins with a discussion of "The parts of an insect." The discussion (Pages 6-7) proceeds from wing to internal anatomy to thorax to antennae, with all manner of tidbits in between. This reminds me of why I'm not dons of insects!

The next subject is the distinction between "What is an insect?" and "These are not insects." The answer to the former question begins with a simple statement that (Page 8) "Insects are the most successful creatures in the whole of the animal kingdom." Kind of puts us mammals in our place. . . . Insects are defined as arthropods (having "a hard, protective exoskeleton") with six legs. Most, too, have wings. How many insects are there? Maybe more than 1,000,000 (million) species are already known. Not insects? Scorpions, prawns, tarantulas, centipedes, earthworms, and wood lice.

Enough for introductions. What does the rest of this volume, again written for the 8-12 year old young reader, address? There is discussion of the first insects (emerging 300,000,000 years ago), an insect's senses, feeding, and metamorphosis. There is also discussion of some of the main types of insects, such as butterflies and moths, beetles, flies, wasps and their kin, and so on.

The book concludes with some perspective, including contributions that insects make.

All in all, a very satisfying entry into the Eyewitness Books series. Young readers with any interest in insects will find this an attractive volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars this will interest children in insects April 7 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This would be a great book for use in elementary school science classes. It has a wonderful layout, with many beautiful photographs (if insects can be called beautiful). The text, mixed nicely with the pictures, covers basic information on insects as well as various interesting facts.
