Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Julia Beiker
How does something that can be invisible to the naked eye still have the power to make a hat disappear or become a damaging storm, attacking a town? It seems strange until the scientific term "wind" comes to mind. People feel wind especially a hot or cold one or they see it when it blows leaves or hair. In this book, our young scientist loses a hat and now uses deduction to figure out which of the three methods makes the most sense. I did not feel that this book was cohesive as it transitioned from the appearance of wind to its effects, which could throw off readers as they solve the mystery; but I appreciate the making of vocabulary words bold-faced and the glossary in the back. The colorful photographs and illustrations enhance the book. One confusing point is in having the "further additional notes" section on page twenty-three where the answers to questions on specific pages are given. It seems like such a strange place to do this. Young readers do not necessarily check the back of the book so they may not even know about these interesting facts and answers. This book is part of the "iScience" series. Reviewer: Julia Beiker
