Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2008 Spring)
In an organized fashion and using standard textbook language, these revised and updated volumes offer accurate introductions to topics ranging from genetics to human organs to evolution. The books cover a lot of ground (some of it overlapping) but in a fairly cursory way. Each concludes with a chart, such as an evolutionary diagram or timeline, that pulls together the information. Reading list, websites. Glos., ind. [Review covers these Cells and Life titles: Animals, The Diversity of Life, DNA and Genetic Engineering, and The World of the Cell.] Copyright 2008 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
