    Once students have learned all about the creatures of the air and the basics of zoology, they can take a trip into the depths and discover all the strange and unique creatures of the sea, lakes, and rivers. They'll learn about the special features of swimming creatures, the different watery environments they live in, what their lifestyles are like, and the special circumstances they deal with. Then they take a closer look at specific groups of swimming creatures, including whales, seals, sea cows, sea turtles, sea snakes, sea frogs and toads, primeval reptiles (like plesiosaurs), fish, sharks, rays, crustaceans, cephalopods, echinoderms, cnidarians, sponges, leeches, and more. As they study these creatures, they'll create replicas of them to add to an ongoing "Ocean Box," and conduct neat experiments like discovering the insulating power of fat, investigating how electrical current travels through salt water vs. fresh water, and determining how much of a role temperature plays in tadpole development. They'll also add to their notebooks by drawing the animals in them, comparing and contrasting animals, and much more. Whether the ocean is a familiar place to your children or not, they'll be equally fascinated by learning about the unique creatures beneath the water.

    This book will show kids that bats aren't scary at all - they just come out at night because this is the best time to find all the pesky bugs like mosquitoes and grasshoppers they need to eat each day. Did you know they eat one-fourth their body weight each day? This book will teach about the physical make-up of bats, how they catch their food, where they like to live, and more. On back is a short list of bat species and where they are found.

    Awww… run your own prehistoric nursery! These little critters are fun to watch and easy to raise (and adorable!) When properly cared for, triops can grow to 2 inches in length and live up to 90 days. Everything you need to grow three rounds of triops is included in this kit, minus water, a light source, and some grated carrot. If you want your triops to grow to their full potential; however, it is recommended that you transfer them to a 1-10 liter tank. Kit includes a hatchery dish, baby triop food, adult triop food, triop eggs, a pipette, and detailed setup/care instructions for each stage of triop growth.

    Although most Dorling-Kindersley books are known for their gorgeous photography and eye-catching layouts, this encyclopedia is downright amazing. It is packed to the gills with close-up photos of mammals, insects, reptiles and amphibians, with plenty of fascinating details on every one. The first part of the book presents general animal topics, including classification, senses, communication, camouflage, birth and growth, habitats, ecology and much more. The second part of the book, which is the largest portion, presents over 2,000 animal species, organized alphabetically by common name. I love this aspect, as it makes it very easy for children to look up the animals they are familiar with, whether they are dogs or penguins. A variety of species for that general name are presented within, so children can see the diversity that exists within each animal group. Most topics and animals are given a two-page spread which features a mix of general text, captioned full-color photos and illustrations, and often a striking, full-page photo of the animal as well. Fact boxes scattered throughout offer a succinct list of information on animal family, habitat, distribution, food, and approximate size for each group of animals. Although enjoyable purely for browsing, an index and glossary are also included. This "feast for the eyes" could easily capture the attention of your resident animal-lover for hours! 376 pgs, pb. – Jess

    From the same publisher as, The Complete Book of Animals (#19546), this condensed version offers appealing graphics and full-color background pages, which makes it a little livelier than the above. While the font is smaller than its predecessor, which accounts for most of the page difference between the two, children with visual difficulties may appreciate the darker font within the pages of Exploring Animals. Content-wise, most of the book is identical, but this version leaves out just a few sections here and there, most being "fun" pages like coloring and activity pages, and also the animal facts and fun section that provides additional review worksheets of the topics covered. One nice benefit of Exploring Animals is the fold-out poster is a map of the continents for identifying the natural habitats of the animals studied, as compared to the Complete Book of Animals poster which focuses on endangered animals. Includes stickers and complete answer keys. If you are looking for a science workbook to provide a base for further hands-on explorations and like the idea of less busy work, this book will be ideal for you. sc. 256 pgs. ~Deanne
