"Australian Animals" - Artistic Nature-Science Unit Study #7


Take a visit to

with this issue of
Artistic Nature Magazine.

See photos of eucalyptus trees and try eucalyptus-and-spearmint tea.  Discover Australia’s amazing animals, from spring-loaded mammals that can leap 30 feet in one bound to a 24-foot tiger shark.  Learn about Australia’s mammals (with almost 50 extant (living) species in the kangaroo family alone), reptiles, and birds, including an incredible large songbird that can imitate not only other bird songs but also musical instruments, human sounds, and machinery.  Discover the mammal with the tiniest babies in the whole mammal world.

Then color some of the 30 coloring pages, which come with specific instructions to help kids learn secrets used by professional artists, applied in ways that are simple enough for a 4th or 5th grader to pick up quickly.  If you have teens, they will love Jennaya's very professional high school art lessons using paints and colored pencils.  (She uses her 100-color set to demonstrate.)  If you have smaller children, we have some coloring pictures that they will enjoy, as well.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
