The Kingfisher Encyclopedia of Life - ESSENTIAL

Banes, Graham L.  The Kingfisher Encyclopedia of Life, 160 p. Kingfisher, 2012.  $20.  Content: G.  NON-FICTION.  

This is a pretty interesting way to look at life and creatures around the world.  The book is divided up into five sections by how long the species lives – from a day up to thousands of years.  Each species is then identified by its general group (vertebrates, invertebrates, Plants/fungi, microorganisms).  It is full of fascinating information that will keep kids riveted long past the book’s due date.  I will be showing this to my science teachers ASAP.
