Informational. A good book with many snipets of information about plants. Could be useful in a science lesson on plants.

To me this book was extremely boring. The information is important in teaching especially in elementary school classrooms though. I know as a teacher I would need to come up with some fun ideas that reference this book.

This is a good overview of plant life on earth. The book is targeted to a young audience and does a great job of providing a fair amount of information without being overwhelming. It is also informative for someone interested in the plant life so critical to our own survival on this planet. It defines what a plant is, the parts a plant can have—some genetic information, how plants reproduce, what habitats plants live in, and much more. The book is full of colorful, detailed pictures with descrip ...more

These DK Eyewitness books are a huge hit at our house. They are full of interesting facts and colorful pictures. We are using these as non-fiction read-alouds for early elementary and typically cover one 2-page spread a night. (The books are aimed at Grades 3-7 for an independent reader.) The books are well-organized and contain sections at the end about jobs in and tools used for studying the topic and places to go for more information.
La continuación de "definitivamente muerta" te engancha desde el principio. Entretenido y fácil de leer como siempre, aunque hay un momento que se hace algo pesadete. Sookie sigue tan pava como siempre ( el personaje no evoluciona) pero bueno, la historia es interesante, que es lo que cuenta, y ya tengo ganas de ver que pasa en el siguiente

OK I know these are supposed to be kid books but they are awesome! Great pictures and just enough text to make you want to learn more. Great choices for a beginning history reader or to start an older reader out in a new area. Every time I pick one of these up and read it I learn new things. Highly Recommended
