From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3?Two very basic overviews that feature heavy, slick pages and transparent overlays. Countries explains maps and globes, landforms, and the Earth's rotation and evolution. Except for the map of Europe, the maps of continents have art objects, buildings, etc., superimposed on them, adding even more information visually. There's hardly any text in Plants?it's mostly captions. Plants are organized by continent, and children might be a bit confused by seeing species common to North America listed under another continent. There is no note saying that some plants are found in several parts of the world. The overlays in this title are particularly effective, often showing the interior of a plant or animals living inside it. In both volumes, when appropriate, a small map or globe is included on the page to place what's being discussed. Jack Knowlton's Maps & Globes (HarperCollins, 1985) and David Burnie's Flowers (DK, 1991) cover some of the same material, but for slightly older readers.?Peg Glisson, Dewitt Road School, Webster, NY
