About these books:
First Second has created a new series that I am certain will be popular with children. Last year, I read Maris Wicks' Human Body Theater and loved the book. Every child, I handed it to also loved the book. Just a couple of days ago, I had a discussion with an eight year old about Human Body Theater. We had a great chat about the book and the parts that we enjoyed. As we talked, I knew that she would really like the new Science Comics series produced by First Second.
One of the two graphic novels released in the series is all about Coral Reefs. Within five colorful chapters, readers learn about coral reefs and how they are formed and the ecosystem that they live in.
Readers are going to love the straight-forward, clear facts and even the humor that winds throughout the book.
End matter includes a glossary, bibliography, and additional resources.
About the book:
This volume: in Dinosaurs, learn all about the history of paleontology! This fascinating look at dinosaur science covers the last 150 years of dinosaur hunting, and illuminates how our ideas about dinosaurs have changed--and continue to change.
Along with the Coral Reefs book, the other title released looks at the early discoveries of fossils and what paleontologists learned from what they uncovered. Most of the book explores early research from the 1800's.
End matter includes a glossary, notes, and further reading suggestions.
Pick up a copy of Coral Reefs or Dinosaurs at your local indie bookstore and keep an eye out for additional releases in this series. These will be popular in classrooms and checked out often from school libraries.
