Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Remy Dou
Biology can be colorful, dirty, and tasty. From designing terrariums to handcrafting bracelets that model DNA molecules, these pages are filled with eleven activities crafted to interest the budding biologist. With just a few simple-to-follow steps, readers will learn more about the living things around them. The colorful layouts, zany fonts, and illustrative photographs will most likely appeal to young girls, but the majority of the projects included are gender neutral. Parents and educators will be glad to know that required materials for each activity are inexpensive and generally easy to find. As a classroom tool, the activities can potentially engage elementary-aged children, but should be supplemented with leading questions that motivate students to pursue further investigation. The "Read More" section could help with that. Although Lew has included interesting science projects and experiments, they are not the most creative or academically lucid in comparison to those in other books in the "Girls Science Club" series produced by Capstone Press. Nevertheless, these are tried-and-true experiments all biology lovers, especially younger ones, should try out. Reviewer: Remy Dou
