Reviewed by CBC Reviewer
This large-format book can support both science and geography lessons with contents arranged by continent and subdivided by biome. As an atlas, it serves as both a reference and a starting point for student projects. In a classroom center, this NSTA/CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book for 2011 will be used and re-used.
Stunning photos, easy-to-read maps, informative graphics, and fast facts about everything from the rock ptarmigan to Eurasian otters will appeal especially to young readers. Resources, a glossary, and an index provide extra information for students who will be fascinated by and "hooked" on this outstanding reference.
