    Even after all the exploration and discovery of the last few hundred years, even with the increasing urbanization of late, there are still many wild places virtually undisturbed by man. Discover mountains, jungles, and deserts through the detailed, colorful illustrations of this Usborne book. Descriptions of the flora, fauna, terrain, animals and people associated with each of these places are numerous and linked to all of the pictures. This 98-pg book is a combined volume of three separate titles: Mountains, Jungles, and Deserts. ~ Zach

    The updated version of Usborne's popular Mysteries and Marvels of Nature has been reorganized, has traded in many of its detailed illustrations for eye-catching full-color photos, and now also features internet links where readers can see nature in action. While the original version organized its six chapters around different species, such as "Ocean Life," "Plant Life," and "Bird Life," the updated version focuses on particular life science topics, such as feeding, movement, communication, and relationships, and examines each topic through each group of organisms. For example, under "Feeding," readers flip through the section to see how (carnivorous) plants, fish, reptiles, birds, mammals and insects all find or capture the food they need to survive. While this approach makes it more difficult to see each aspect of a group of organisms side-by-side, it does make for interesting comparison with other groups of organisms. In general, I would say that there is a little less text in this version than in the older one, since more page space is occupied by the photographs. Some animal examples used are similar to the ones in the original book, but plenty of new material has been included as well. One other small difference here is the lack of the "True or False" quiz questions scattered throughout the original version. Instead, with this version (and internet access) readers can listen to humpback whales sing, find out what the world looks like to a bee, and go on a safari in the Kalahari Desert by visiting the suggested internet links. I'd venture to guess this one would hold the attention of young readers longer, with its abundance of huge, sharp, dramatic animal photos to enjoy! 128 pgs, hc. - Jess

    Color and learn about butterflies at the same time with this charming and realistic coloring book. Open this book and you have colorful images of butterflies on one side beside outline images to color with pencils or crayons. The name of each species is at the top of the page along with a sprinkling of butterfly facts. Coloring tips, such as how to shade, are scattered throughout. A variety of plants and flowers add to the colorful backgrounds. Imagine taking this book outside in the sunshine, hoping to see a real butterfly flutter by as you color it's likeness on paper. I can see middle-schoolers enjoying this book as much as little ones. ~ Sara
