Summary:  Divided into three sections–human body, animal kingdom, and earth and science–this book investigates life on earth through comic book-style stories about a day in the life of various things.  From the profound (brain, blue whale, moon) to the profane (fart, pimple, dung beetle), these stories will educate and entertain many different types of kids.  Includes a glossary.  128 pages; grades 2-6.  

Pros:  Both the format and the wide range of topics make this a very appealing book that is perfect for browsing.

Cons:  There’s a little information on a lot of topics, so probably not the best for research.
