I considered using this for homeschooling next year but I'm not terribly impressed with it. Each topic gets just a page and most of that is taken up with illustrations and quick facts, leaving kids with little real information. In many cases, the information was incomplete because of the necessary brevity or made generalizations that aren't entirely accurate, which will leave kids with misconceptions about the topics. In other cases, it was written in a very confusing way. I would have been tota ...more

Supersimple Biology: The Ultimate Bitesize Study Guide is yet another excellent product from DK. Really, it’s almost impossible to go wrong with a DK book and any parent and/or teacher could do a lot worse than stocking their home or room library with nothing but in terms of non-fiction. Their books are always lucid, concise, and, in their best aspect, have absolutely fantastic illustrations. This one is no different.

The book opens up with a look at science as a study/field, discussing elements

When life for the entire universe and planet turns on its end and like everyone else you "have nothing to do" while your place of work is closed and you are in #COVID19 #socialisolation, superspeed readers like me can read 250+ pages/hour, so yes, I have read the book … and many more today. (I have played a zillion games of scrabble, done a zillion crosswords and I AM BORED!!!)

I requested and received a temporary digital Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley, the publisher and the aut

Do Kids Really Learn All This?

I have to say I am surprised to see the range of topics that biology courses for grades 6 to 10 can cover. The back cover of this book states it is for that grade range. I never took biology in high school, and my middle school didn't have a specific biology class; we took more of a survey of sciences then. This study guide is wonderful, starting with the basics like defining life and discussing the scientific method and best techniques. After basics are covered, ma

Originally published on my blog: Nonstop Reader.

Supersimple Biology: The Ultimate Bitesize Study Guide is a resource guide for learning and studying biology. Due out 23rd June 2020 from Penguin/Random House on their DK imprint, it's 288 pages and will be available in paperback and ebook formats. As almost always with DK's offerings, I was blown away by the detailed, clear, and solidly expert photography. Every photo is well rendered and easy to follow. The supportive text is also clear and a

This book is part of a series that I love. Published by DK Smithsonian, it is called the Ultimate Bitesize study guide. The lesson is usually one page and the illustrations are beautiful and an important part of the guide. Chapters include Cells, Respiration, Plants, Nutrition, Nervous system, Hormones, and genetics. Great for your Junior High science buff or High school-er who needs simple explanations to complex issues. I received a copy of this ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Another great guide from DK! I like how it is organized by concept, so you can easily review and drill down where you need to work on your knowledge. Some of the pages can be a little cluttered but overall it's an appealing, well-explained reference.

Thanks to the publishers and NetGalley for the opportunity to review a digital ARC in exchange for an unbiased review.

I like that it is layer out like Cards for each concept. This is a great colourful reference guide to basic concepts. Just enough details to not bore you.
