Reviews

These books are fabulous examples of informational text. Each book contains a table of contents, glossary, and index. They have interesting content, great picture/text support, and wonderful use of side text and headings. They are grade appropriate and correlate to the classroom curriculum for grades 4-6. --Marla Conn, educational consultant on the Biome Quest series
