The National Geographic Kid is curious about the world around them, empowered in the face of challenges and responsible for others and the natural world. Combining these principles with the international educational heritage of Collins, this partnership is a natural fit for books that are funny, weird, exploratory, educational and loved by children.
K-Gr 2-These titles engage children through humor, clear language, interesting facts, and abundant photos. In the first book, Baines takes readers through the functions that bones perform in a human body. A caption reads, "Bonk! Your skull is like a helmet for your brain." The second volume opens with a picture of a generic egg about to hatch, illustrated with the word balloon, "Hello? Mom?" As explained in the next pages, it might contain a turtle or a fish or a butterfly. Maybe it's a swan. How about an alligator? All sorts of eggs are explained. Both books have two font sizes. The larger one is easier to read, while the smaller one might require adult help and explanation. Each one concludes with a spread of facts and questions to zigzag through and ponder. Excellent introductions for young science students.-Anne Chapman Callaghan, Racine Public Library, WI Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
