Applying meticulously detailed cross-section illustrations to such objects as a bee nest and a tree, an informative exploration of the natural world explains how animals make their homes and why conservation is important.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8?Impressive, splashy, cross-sectioned illustrations combine with pithy captions to give general overviews of 12 aspects of the natural world. The topics range from a beaver lodge to the Antarctic, from a beehive and a termite city to the Pacific Ocean. There seems to be no reason why these particular topics are covered, and they are presented in no particular order. Most of the pictures are done on large, double-page spreads. There are two gatefolds: one shows a tree in a rain forest, and an even larger one shows life in the Arctic. The latter is printed on tougher, presumably less-easily torn, paper. This book is best for browsing and sparking students' interest, although some useful facts could be gleaned from it for reports. There are plenty of details in each colorful illustration, making it a fun, but nonessential, choice.?Todd Morning, Schaumburg Township Public Library, IL

From Booklist:

Gr. 4^-6. Orr's colorful paintings show cutaway views of ecosystems such as a rain forest, a tidal pool, and an American desert, as well as structures such as a beaver lodge and a beehive. With large, double-page spreads for most topics and two sections folding out to poster-size four-page spreads, the oversize format of the book makes possible a wealth of detail in the pictures. In addition to the brief introduction to each subject, short paragraphs identify and discuss portions of the illustrations. Although the broad coverage may preclude depth, the book will intrigue browsers and could be useful in the classroom. Carolyn Phelan
