Science Books & Films - Gary R. Evans

"In Composting: Nature's Recyclers, Robin Koontz has created an eye-catching book for young people that explains the process of composting, a form of recycling. The book introduces the young reader, visually and in words, to the natural process of how nature converts plant and animal material to organic compost. Side notes on every other page provide "fun facts" for the learner. Readers can relate to the composting process when they see leaves in the fall become the end product in the spring. The author includes a hands-on composting lesson, a good glossary, and additional references for parents and teachers, for further exploration. This is definitely a resource book for the classroom, as well as a book for parents to use with their children." - Science Books & Films

The series includes five addtional titles: Erosion: Changing Earth's Surface, Magnification: A Closer Look, Science Measurements: How Heavy? How Long? How Hot?, Science Safety: Being Careful, and Science Tools: Using Machines and Instruments." - The Midwest Book Review
