Review by Booklist Reviews

The Discover Science series is a boon for visual learners, with glossy pages full of crisp images and orbiting chunks of text set in large type. Each spread introduces a new subtopic of each book's scientific subject area, doling out bits of information that range from vaguely helpful to neatly succinct. Animal Homes presents a creative way to look at animal diversity, introducing general habitats like ponds or more specific animal real estate like shells, webs, hives, and lodges (depicted in a comfy-looking cutout, with beavers milling about). While these books are useful as browsable scientific overviews for newly independent readers, the smart inclusion of three or four craft activities at the end will help get kids thinking about practical applications for what they're learning. The section "Parent and Teacher Notes" will give adults a hand in getting involved, too. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.
