About the Author:

Firefly Books

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4-- Handsome title pages are followed by 16 equally attractive, well-laid-out pages. Each item pictured is given two pages. A detailed, blown up, full-color photo of the object appears on the left; on the right is a drawing of the photo peeled back to reveal a diagram of ``what's inside.'' Single sentences scattered around both pages point to and comment on specific parts. All this is just enough to pique the interest of young readers, who are bound to pick up information on roots or pollen, or nerves and respiration. The objects range from the well-known ladybug or tulip to the more exotic stick insect or pitcher plant. The photos of the insects are stunning in their clarity, detail, and rich color. Minor drawbacks are that the interior views are neither as complex nor as visually rich as the exteriors, relative size is not indicated, there is some repetition, and a few facts seem gratuitous. Plants concentrates on flowers, omitting seeds and trees, and doesn't use cross-sections. Although not essential, the books are attractive. --Sharon Levin, University of Vermont, Burlington
