Life Processes by Anna ClaybourneLife processes by Anna Claybourne is a volume in the Web of Life (Freestyle Express) Series, published by Heinemann/ Raintree. Other volumes in this series are Adaptation and survival, Behavior in living things, Food chains and webs, The Future of life on Earth, and Variation in living things.
The targeted reading level for the Freestyle is reading level 6 and Freestyle Express is reading level 3. As described by the publisher, the same core curriculum content at two different levels.
The book describes the seven life processes of living things: movement, respiration, sensitivity, nutrition, excretion, reproduction, growth. I liked combination of paragraphs, fact boxes, word banks, charts and the many photos on each page to expound each life process. Facts are presented in a thoughtful, well explained manner, just right for readers to absorb and grasp the concept presented.
The Life Processes at a Glance page is a useful addition for quick consumption of the compilation of facts.
When we hear again and again how American children lag behind in science, a major reason may be lack of interest on a childs part in wanting to read and learn about science. When checking the library shelves, one may find some nearly new looking juvenile science books available, but checking the publication date may be a shock - they could be 20 years old! Librarians, do our future scientists a favor and purchase some newly published editions for your childrens shelves. Not all info may change, but just having a book published in the last 3-5 yrs. is a big plus. We hope to add the rest of this series to our shelves ASAP.

The study of plants is a branch of Biology. Without green plants there would be no life on our planet Earth. Animals can move around to search for their food, but green plants must stay in one place and therfore make their own food. Plants need light, air and water to grow. They usually grow better in warm conditions. Plants feed themselves by using the light to convert carbon dioxide and water into food and oxygen. Catching light is therefore a very important part of the plants growing process.
