This five-book series in Spanish introduces different aspects of plant biology to readers in the early elementary grades. Through diagrams, illustrations, and short chapters, various aspects of plant life are revealed, including leaves, soil, stems, flowers, and roots. Each book is divided into seven or eight short chapters that explain the many varieties of each type of plant or plant part, different species of plants, and the role that different plants play in their ecosystems. Text is surrounded by plenty of white space, making it easy to read, and clear visual representations help put essential information in context. The strength of its series is its inclusion of science experiments that are relevant to each concept and accessible to readers at different levels. Also included in each volume is a glossary, questions to enhance comprehension, and a review of important concepts. VERDICT These books provide a much-needed boost to large science collections.
