Editorial Reviews

Library Media Connection, 10/2013 - Pamela K. Simmons
Science teachers will thank you for having this book in your collection! Readers will be lured by the catchy story titles and short mysteries that cover a wide variety of science themes in Life Science, Earth and Space Science, Physical and Chemical Science, and General Science. The science content is woven into the story seamlessly, while keeping the stories to a page in length. With the Common Core Standards requiring reading and writing across the subject areas, this book is perfect. The stories provide a great opportunity to use content knowledge and critical thinking skills to construct a response. The captivating stories will encourage even the most reluctant reader. This is a great read for kids who love science as well as a valuable resource for teachers. - Ryan McAllister
Apparently, parents are more comfortable talking with their kids about drugs than about science and math. One Minute Mysteries: 65 More Short Mysteries You Solve With Science is the third title in this award-winning to connect math and science to real life. For those who loved the Encyclopedia Brown mysteries, these books harken back to them, though in a shorter format. Kids with inquisitive minds, interest in understanding how things work, or enjoyment of puzzles will be drawn to these quirky stories. Adults, too, might learn a few things, like whether or not all metals are magnetic. An excellent narrative format for learning about nature and how things work!
Gail O. Schulte
Why? This book helps kids answer that important question. Filled with kid-centric mini-mysteries and clear and concise solutions, One Minute Mysteries: 65 More Short Mysteries You Solve With Science encourages kids to think critically about real-life situations. With Next Generation Science Standards on the horizon, this book will be a sure hit in the classroom. An entertaining and educationally-engaging tool for science teachers everywhere!
Margie Hawkins
I have been using your first One Minute Mysteries book as BRAIN activities with my 6th grade science class. It has been such a hit! The students love them because they are challenging—puzzles to be solved with their peers. They compete enthusiastically to solve each mystery before their classmates. I love them because each mystery kick-starts their brains into a critical thinking, problem solving mode in just minutes at the beginning of each class. The scenarios stimulate wonderful scientific debates among my students. They are a fun strategy for the students to apply their science knowledge to real world problems. This next book is as riveting as the original! I look forward to adding it to my classroom resources. Thanks again for creating this wonderful addition to science teaching and learning!
Robert Fenstermacher
These brainteasers are science magic! They help kids extract the important data needed to solve science and logic problems while strengthening and rewarding reading skills. My ten year old grandson devoured the book! He was excited when he knew the solutions and was eager to discover the ones unknown. Clever, entertaining and scientifically educational, readers will learn much from the concise, accurate solutions. There is a wide diversity of topics that children will want to investigate further. A perfect way to have fun with a child or grandchild!
Thomas Peters
Learning how to sort the relevant from the irrelevant in an information-rich environment is how students become critical thinkers. This book is a refreshing gateway into scientific investigation. A perfect bedtime ritual, it triggers dialog between parents and their kids. Just the ticket for families to enjoy together or for keeping the kids stimulated on a long car trip or a rainy afternoon!
Hank Phillippi Ryan
Wow, I love these! These fabulous little mysteries encourage curiosity, develop critical thinking, promote creativity and, shhh… even allow kids to learn something! The Yoders have really come up with a family-friendly treasure!
Jan Mokros

Matt Bobrowsky
Kids can’t help but love science in this entertaining collection of stories. Each mystery encourages students to begin examining their world with a scientific eye. The mysteries are quick, yet challenging, making them a perfect fit for even the busiest schedule. Try solving just one, but watch out; you might not be able to stop!
