Summary

Summary

Exploring Life Science is a thoroughly up-to-date 11-volume set specially created to provide reference support for the science curriculum in grades 4-6. It reflects today's increasing interest in the environment and includes a wide range of exciting new scientific advances -- especially in the field of medicine. Written in dear, understandable language, the text is complemented by detailed full-color illustrations and photographs, making this set attractive to younger students not only for use in completing their reports and research assignments, but also to pursue general interest in the life sciences.

Booklist Review

Marshall Cavendish brings to middle-grade students a full-color encyclopedia that they will find easy to use. In volume one is a page entitled "How to Use This Set" that explains the layout. The table of contents lists the topics contained in each of the 11 volumes. A second content guide, called "Contents by Area of Interest," brings subjects together for the young researcher. For instance, under fungi one will find a reference to the main entry in volume five and also references to the entries Lichens, Molds and mildews, Mushrooms, and Yeast. Volumes one through ten are arranged alphabetically. Each article begins with a definition of the topic. Children's eyes will be drawn to the superb illustrations. Bravo to the publishers for making this a multiethnic source; in the article Medicine, an illustration of an African American woman doctor listening to a baby's heart is an example of balance in the depiction of gender as well. The articles contain boxed "Highlights," which provide quick key information. Some articles also include a box called "Look Closer," offering more detail about a particular subtopic. An illustration of this can be found in the entry Intelligence, where the Look Closer box discusses the origin of the term genius. All articles have a "Check These Out!" feature that provides cross-referencing. For example, the Lice article suggests that students also read about parasites. Volume 11 contains the overall indexes (subject and general), plus much more. There is a list of organisms by kingdom, from the animals to the protoctists. A two-page time line spans from 520 B.C.E. to 1997 and beyond 2000. This volume also offers three pages of "Places to Go" by state and by biome/habitat. Under "Things to Do," a student can find lists of books, magazines, and organizations and clubs, as well as CD-ROMs, videos, television shows, radio programs, and Web sites. Teachers may recognize that the format of Exploring Life Science is similar to Marshall Cavendish's Encyclopedia of Life Sciences [RBB Jl 96] for grades 6^-12. Middle-grade students who use Exploring Life Science should find it natural to graduate to the higher-level Encyclopedia of Life Sciences. For quick definitions, they may prefer DK's Dictionary of Nature (1994); fungi types, for example, are all described briefly here on one page. But for short reports and projects on life-science topics, Exploring Life Science is highly recommended for students in grades 3^-5. Younger students may need some help with vocabulary, but the pictures will go a long way toward piquing the interest of budding scholars.


School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-6-Arranged into a single alphabet, these more than 300 specific, easily digestible articles cover living things, the environment, and the life sciences themselves. Entries are enhanced by numerous crisply detailed photos, full-color drawings, and boxed closer looks at special issues or topics. The final volume contains useful tables, overviews, and addresses as well as subject and cumulative indexes. Each article concludes with see-also references. And-a revolutionary idea in this age of cookie-cutter book design for nonfiction-larger topics are allowed space beyond the standard double-page spread: four pages each for "Wetlands," "Parasites," and "Biotechnology"; six for "Animals" and "Plants." Based on the high school level Encyclopedia of Life Sciences (Marshall Cavendish, 1995), this set has been written with younger researchers in mind and deserves a place in large or mid-sized reference collections.-John Peters, New York Public Library (c) Copyright 2010.
