about

In a similar treatment to their previous books about science and literature, the authors consider over 25 picture books (both new and classic, but all new to this volume) that provide examples in nature (topics include living things, earth and stars, and natural changes) for children to observe, describe, and appreciate. This book is targeted for the primary student (K-3) and focuses only on books that build on children's appreciation of the natural world. As added value to each chapter, a list of additional picture book titles and Web references is included. Summaries of each book are provided, as are an extensive vocabulary list, science concepts, puzzles, and integrated activities in math, language arts, writing, social studies, science, and art. The book also offers integrated activities in the area of information literacy to help hone student skills.
