Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amy S. Hansen
Short, basic paragraphs about many kinds of science make this book approachable for several age groups. If you are looking for a quick definition or explanation, this is a good place. If you want more in-depth research, this is still a good place to start, but you will need to supplement the information. The authors divide science into six parts: Living Things, Materials, Forces, Energy, The Earth and Space, and Science at Work. Living Things starts with a section about Life processes: "There are seven activities that all living things do. These are called life processes. If something carries out all seven life processes, you know it's alive." This book offers an overview. It does not address tricky issues (such as is a seed alive before it germinates?) but rather gives the rules, instead of the exceptions. Illustrated with attractive drawings, this book will work well in libraries and classrooms.
