Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer KMeng
Biology is completely alive and all around us! It is the
study of life; this includes plants, animals, and all cells.
All of the types of life are classified by the following
kingdoms: animals, plants, fungi, bacteria, and protists. In
order for the organisms to function, they require "building
blocks." Cells, mitochondria, DNA, and enzymes are just a
few of these needed parts. Larger groups of cells make up
organs. A few human organs are the heart, lungs, skin, and
kidneys. Plants, however, have different needs including
stems, roots, seeds, and pollen.
Biology: Life As We Know
it! was a somewhat strange book. I have always enjoyed
biology, but this book was meant for younger students who
are just starting their education in biology. The pictures
that were included were rather cheesy and strange. The
information, however, would be beneficial to anyone studying
the subject. On every page, there were a few random facts
about the specific topic. This broadened my knowledge on the
individual topics. The actual writing was well done and
succinct. I recommend this book to students who have a hard
time with biology.
