Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Informative, solid introductions. The unique feature of these beginning readers is the introduction of a scientist in each one. The first book discusses why there are volcanoes and where they can be found. Instructions for a model made from common household materials are included. The second title describes how astronauts live in space and the tools they use. The activity invites readers to explore the night sky. Dinosaurs tells how fossils are found and what paleontologists do with them. The project included uses a leaf, paper, and pencil to show how a plant fossil is formed. Space has only full-color photographs, while the other titles include color illustrations as well as photos. These titles combine an enticing layout with high-interest, easy-to-read texts to delight budding scientists.-Jean Lowery, Bishop Woods Elementary School, New Haven, CT Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
