Though I would recommend the purchase of all books, some of them are better than others. These are what I believe to be the six best books from this series (in order)
1) The Tree
The first page already allows children to “look inside” of a green prickly chestnut; “discover” the beautiful and shiny brown nut as well as the white inside of the protective bur. The book uses the chestnut tree to explain how trees grow, the parts of the tree, how the seasons affect trees, and why trees are an important parts of animals’ habitats. Briefly the book also introduces other types of trees.
2) The Camera
Young readers will be fascinated to learn how pictures were taken in the past. The book shows how a camera works on the inside as well as how pictures were developed in the dark room (complete with red light). Also included – Polaroid pictures, ultrasound and X-ray pictures, video cameras and Panasonic movie cameras, and even how a photo booth works.
3) The Egg
Though this book does not answer the question, which came first, the chicken or the egg, the transparency pages help to explain how the egg is formed inside the hen, and how the chick starts to grow. The book also explains how eggs of different birds and reptiles differ in size and shape.
The book not only introduces the colors but also shows how orange, green, purple, violet, brown and gray are being “mixed”. The transparency pages are a perfect way to illustrate the ‘mixing’ process because young readers can see the “before and after”. The transparency pages illustrate the changes.
Shows anthills, mole tunnels, fox burrows and many more animals’ homes; includes all kinds of habitats – from the beach to the desert
6) The Pyramids
brings the fascinating world of the old Egyptians alive. Depicted are how pyramids were built, and the embalming and burial of a dead pharaoh. Very cool are the illustrations of Howard Carter finding King Tutankhamen’s treasure chamber. Also included - the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Other books from this series which I own:
Light, Vegetables, Airplanes, Weather, All About Time, Fruit, Animals, Bears, Penguins, Boats, The Ladybug, Dinosaurs, The River, Birds, Whales, Cats, The Seashore, The Earth and the Sky, Musical Instruments, Castles, and The Rain Forest.
Additionally, I own the following German editions of what appears to be the same series published by Meyer’s Kleine Bibliothek.
Die Biene (The Honey Bee), Die Stadt (The City), Kleiner Weltatlas (Little World Atlas), and Die Indianer (Native Americans).
Yes, my children and I loved this series so much that we bought and collected these books when vacationing overseas.
