Am I the only one who loves this series? I think the books are so fun and interesting to the kids and has just the right amount of info. And the photographs are amazing. I like that it uses a lot of real photos instead of unrealistic illustrations, yet they still make it so colorful and fun to look at.
I think I'm going to use Usborne's "First Encyclopedia of the Human Body" for Health this year.
BTW, I am choosing SUCH a different route this year with school... I am going from almost all workbooks to almost all read-aloud books. But these look so much more interesting to ME that hopefully I won't feel like someone's pulling my teeth to actually pick it up and read it.
Mom to Titus (10), Isaiah (8), Noelle (6), Joel (4), Hannah (2), and baby due Sept 10!
I love those books too and the DK books as well. The pictures are very visually interesting and can be very infomative all on their own. I also like that they have information chunked into "captions" throughout the book - makes it less intimidating to struggling readers (I teach special ed, so all of my students are struggling readers). I have squirreled away lots of these books for my own kids over the years!
