The Life Cycle of a Sea Horse

Sea Horse, Beetle, Flower "The sentence structure and vocabulary are not over lengthy or technical yet give ample information. The use of diagrams and spectacular photographs expand and enrich the text while adding a magnetic interest and are an invaluable aid to comprehension....The Life Cycle series will lend itself beautifully to beginning research projects for home or school. The page layout is interesting and inviting without being cluttered." —Catholic Library World, 12/04
