Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-7–The value of the first six of these wide-ranging introductions lies in their clear explanations, lively presentations, and numerous household (or local) and global examples of their subjects. The short chapters in Minerals, for example, cover such standard fare as “What Is a Rock?” and “Sedimentary Rocks,” but are rescued by their use of short paragraphs that include helpful scientific definitions. Information in Climate Change ranges from an examination of Philadelphia’s climate over the past 30 years to a description of recent changes in Siberian permafrost. Multiple colorful sidebars and large and small diagrams and photographs will help students to grasp the fundamentals being discussed, and the easy but interesting science experiments will act as further reinforcements. Cycles brings together information that must normally be searched for across multiple volumes and drives home the message that Earth’s ecosystems and natural processes are delicately balanced and intertwined. Science Across Cultures, however, attempts to cover too much, discussing such diverse topics as science history and basics, careers, and controversies. Pass on this one.
