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.
