The book "Looking Into Nature's Secrets" by Reader's Digest is a hardcover kid's book with a cut out on the front cover. That cut out shows a multi-layer scene of a pond and tree. The layers that make it up are plastic sheets on each page of the book. While this adds visual interest to the book, it really does not give any further information to the child reading it.
The information in this book is great for beginning science explorers. It covers the basics of animal homes, habitats, and even migration. There are some interesting facts next to drawings of the plant or animal in question, but no in depth explanations. The brightly colored illustrations are eye catching to the younger child.
The book has 12 cardboard pages. For kindergarten or first grade aged children, it is a fun resource about nature.
