DISCOVER THEWORLD OF LIFE AS GODCREATED IT! The field of biology focuses on living things, from the smallest microscopic protozoa to the largest mammal. In this book you will read and explore the life of plants, insects, spiders and other arachnids, life in water, reptiles, birds, and mammals, highlighting God's amazing creatio. You will learn about the following and so much more: How does biological classification give each different type of plant or animal a unique name? In what ways are seeds spread around the world? What food does the body use for long-term storage of energy? How did biologists learn how the stomach digested food? What plant gave George de Mestral the idea for Velcro? For most of history, biologists used the visible appearance of plants or animals to classify them. They grouped plants or animals with similar-looking features into families. Starting in the 1990s, biologists have extracted DNA and RNA from cells as a guide to how plants or animals should be grouped. Like visual structures, these reveal the underlying design or creation. The newest book in our Exploring series, Exploring the World of Biology is a fascinating look at life - from the smallest proteins and spores, to the complex life systems of humans and animals.

Last spring, Pansy chickened out on going to spring break camp, even though she'd promised her best friend, Anna, she'd go. It was just like when they went to get their hair cut for Locks of Love; only one of them walked out with a new hairstyle, and it wasn't Pansy. But Pansy never got the chance to make it up to Anna. While at camp, Anna contracted meningitis and a dangerously high fever, and she hasn't been the same since.

So when Pansy discovers that Anna is getting a surgery that might cure her, Pansy realizes this is her chance--she'll become the friend she always should have been. She'll become the best friend Anna's ever had--even if it means taking risks, trying new things (like those scary roller skates), and running herself ragged in the process. Pansy's chasing extraordinary, hoping she reaches it in time for her friend's triumphant return. But what lies at the end of Pansy's journey might not be exactly what she had expected--or wanted.
