      For years, I used this book with my special needs students in their Biology class at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School in Cambridge, MA. Harper's illustrations seem to really connect with them. The school is undergoing huge renovations and in the move to my new classroom, my copy was lost. The books are too expensive for me to purchase. Is anyone willing to scan the images or make copies of them so that I can still use them with my kids?
      I have lots of images from the iternet, but not the ones in the book or the narrative that goes along with the wonderful pix. Anyone out there who can help?

      Oh my gosh!!! I was in my tiny north Texas home town this weekend and found this under a stack of old used games in a junk store and bought it for $1.50. Now I feel like I have to go back and give the old guy some more money!
