Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
What most readers want from a book like this are practical ideas on how to execute a science-fair project. Unfortunately, most of the ideas and discussion in this volume--a revised edition of How Fast Do Oysters Grow (Messner, 1982; o.p.)--are too vague to offer much help. Smith suggests an assortment of ideas for projects, but most are sketchy and none are followed from concept to final presentation. Furthermore, there is no list of science periodicals or science equipment suppliers, and the bibliography is short and out of date. Curiously, the information on graphing data is first rate, and is well illustrated with numerous examples and black-and-white diagrams. The remaining illustrations, black-and-white reproductions and drawings, add little to the discussion. Overall, the book lacks a sense of what really happens at science fairs; several recently published books on the subject do a much better job. --Alan Newman, American Chemical Society, Washington, D.C.
