Grade 6-9-These two titles are clearly designed to meet trade-formatted informational needs at a time when "textbook" is twice a four-letter word. Up-to-date, organized by subject headings within logically pyramidal chapters, and adequately illustrated, they feature information boxes, glossaries for terms highlighted in the texts, and lists of Web sites. Though lacking the flair of, say, Linda Gamlin's Evolution (DK, 1993) or Laurence Pringle's considerably older Chains, Webs, and Pyramids (Crowell, 1975; o.p.), they will be welcomed by students and teachers who are looking for clearly written, dependable material. Utilitarian. Useful.
