Field Guides Set 2 – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

Nature lovers will rejoice with these trimmed down, visual field guides. As one expects, there are scientific as well as common names featured in each, but there are also more candid images that match a real-life visual experience. Helpful tips are alongside background information about different species for easy identification. The series includes household and common uses for the plants, which makes these books feel topical yet not heavy with subject matter as some field guides for older teens can be. VERDICT This is a delightful match that pairs applied science through experiences and classroom knowledge in a way that will bring joy to middle school students.
