A compendium of diverse, fun science facts suitable for inquiring minds from 8 to 80, 101 Things Everyone Should Know About Science is as entertaining and engaging as it is informed and informative. 101 Things Everyone Should Know About Science is particularly recommended for school and community libraries, and would be an ideal addition to home schooling curriculums as supplemental reading in preparation for instilling a drive to learn what the various sciences are about.

This is a fantastic book for quizzing students during the last 10 minutes of class or as a transition activity. The resource section at the back of the book offers fabulous ideas and resources for budding scientists, and the index is very helpful. It can be used for a review after a unit of study, to supplement a unit of study, or to extend a unit of study. Overall, it would be a great addition to any classroom library!

Children's Literature - Amie Rose Rotruck
Science can be a daunting subject for children, yet science must be understood in order to fully comprehend the world around us. The book consists of a list of questions in the following categories: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Earth Science, General Science, and a Bonus category. The question formats include multiple choice, matching, fill-in-the-blank, and straight answer. The second section of the book contains the answers to the questions, including in-depth explanations and examples. The answers are not limited to just straight science; the important scientists are also included when relevant. There are numerous resources listed at the end of the book, including websites, organizations, and even museum exhibits. This is a great book to read alone or use for a trivia game. Either way, it provides a brief but excellent glance at many basic scientific facts.
