Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-These slim, information-packed books approach their topics through myriad perspectives and formats: time lines, eyewitness accounts, "Amazing But True" facts, problem-solving queries, games, scrapbook pages, and more. Health looks at sports helmets and seat belts through time, alcohol consumption, nutrition, smoking, and more. Biology examines a smorgasbord of subjects including the heart, energy, the psychic challenges of climbing Mt. Everest, and the stages of sleep. In both titles, each of the spreads contains a research idea or experiment suggestion highlighted in a bright yellow box. Every page is illustrated with colorful photos, graphs, charts, maps, drawings, or cartoons. Font color and size change frequently. Students using the tables of contents as road maps will be able to glean lots of facts from these titles. However, many readers may find the organization and numerous tidbits of information and graphics confusing. These books will have browsing and reluctant-reader appeal and may work as supplements to textbook studies.-Barbara L.
