This 48-page volume in the iScience Readers series provides students with information about plant and animal systems that facilitate the success of living things. Concepts are presented logically and in a developmentally appropriate way, making the content easy to understand.

The authors use a problem-based learning scenario and questioning techniques that encourage science inquiry. Information and questions throughout the book guide readers to investigate answers and challenge them to solve a problem-to determine which system in a greenhouse is not working properly. The illustrations are photographs. This high-quality, durable book is perfect for the classroom.

Contents in the book include a puzzle, a discovery activity, a glossary, references for further reading, additional notes, and an index. I highly recommend this book to teachers in grades 3-5. Upper grade teachers with special education students as well as elementary teachers using differentiated instruction will also find this book very useful.

This book is a member of a series of leveled Science Books called iScience Readers. These books follow a similar organization of information. Open ended questions are sprinkled throughout along with experiment and project ideas. The text is well distributed into the graphics and illustrations. Glossary words are in bold print. Connections are made to history, occupations, and how the reader can become more involved. There is a table of content, glossary, index, and an additional notes page that gives the answer to all the questions throughout the book, which is a really nice succinct feature of the book. I highly recommend this series.

Richmond Public Schools



This is a great series for beginning science introduction and study. Books are easy to manage both in size and amount of pages. Each book has a colorful cover wtih a round colorful picture of the subject. Inside it is packed with information with great photographs. Text is 2-3 paragraphs per page. There are additional features highlighting the topic and sub-topic headings. I like the science puzzle at the beginning - almost an ice breaker into the topic. The discovery activity is a great hands on example of the topic. Very nice series for the younger elementary.
