This work is for ages 6-12. The text is in Spanish. Children see themselves as part of a non-living world of houses, schools, and televisions. This intriguing book explains what a living thing is so that children can make the connection between themselves and other living things, including plants, animals, and insects. Children will discover: why living things need air, food, water, and sunshine; what cells are; how living things need energy; how they grow, change, and reproduce; the different senses.
