Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cherie Ilg Haas
Just about anything that can be included under the giant umbrella of "science" is covered in this fun (yes, fun!) reference book. The periodic table, light, machines, water, relativity, and electricity are just a few of the concepts that are explored. Mini-cartoon "brainwaves" escort the reader throughout the book, showing examples of scientific theories and just being silly. The chapters are short—each is a two-page spread—but packed with information. The levels of science are advanced, but everything is put together in a way that would spark interest even for readers who are new to these concepts. And while this is not necessarily a book that a teen would pick up to read cover-to-cover, it would be an excellent supplement to concepts learning in the classroom and a great addition to any science classroom or school library. This book contains a table of contents, a glossary, and an index. Reviewer: Cherie Ilg Haas
School Library Journal
Gr 3–6—A sprawling, unique overview of the various scientific fields. Although students will have to hunt through the dense layout to find facts, they will likely encounter what they are searching for. The index is an indispensable tool. The layout is intentionally busy, with tiny, colorful characters known as the Brainwaves jam-packed onto each page. Cracking jokes and demonstrating scientific principles, these lighthearted Lilliputians mostly serve to add levity to the proceedings, but occasionally provide helpful examples. Topics, which include the periodic table, force, and future science, are each presented on individual inventive spreads with facts in short bursts of text that intermingle with the illustrations. Appealing enough to inspire pleasure reading, the book will also serve those looking for scientific facts.—Travis Jonker, Dorr Elementary School, MI
