Grade 3-5-These three titles use clear photographs, illustrations, charts, and short chapters to introduce students to their subjects. In the first title, Kalman clearly explains what food chains and webs are and discusses their different levels and/or types. Directions are given for a game that further explains the latter concept. Biome offers a map and discussion of the major types of ecological communities (grasslands, scrublands, desert, etc.). A final page notes how humans are jeopardizing these environments. No solutions are given. Life Cycle takes readers from birth to adulthood to the reproduction of plants and animals, including humans. Photographs show a sheep giving birth and millipedes mating. Visual representations of the circular pattern of the life cycle can be found throughout. These books will find a lot of use in schools and libraries.
