Dorling Kindersley continues to update and revise previous titles with current information, while maintaining their high quality informational texts for elementary students. The information is organized under bold headings, on each two-page spread, and then further broken down under bold sub-headings, making it easy for students to navigate the page. All pages are full of captioned colour photographs, and well-labelled diagrams that will capture attention and extend the short, concise main text. Students will be able to locate information easily using Table of Contents, Index, Glossary, and will be able to extend their knowledge using the “Useful Websites” included in the end pages.
Tree (DK Eyewitness, 2015) is the latest revision of the title originally published in 1990. This text relates specifically to the Grade 6 Science unit – Trees and Forests, covering such topics as coniferous, and deciduous trees, how trees grow and develop, determining tree age, simple and compound leaves, needles, insect activity and fire damage. Excellent captioned photographs, and labelled diagrams extend the main text.
