Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amy S. Hansen
Part of the "Science Fair Winners" series, Young asks readers to look at their own close relatives and investigate such things as height people they are closest to and investigate the correlation of birth order and height, the ability to distinguish between identical twins, food preferences, and more. This is not the standard science fair experiment book. Many of the projects fall in the category of social science, which Young reassures the reader, is indeed real science, though not usually taught until high school or college. The projects she is suggesting are not common, but certainly are interesting. "People study many different aspects of family relationships to learn what difference it makes to share genes, parents, rooms, food, and many other things. They've learned that these relationships are linked to what we do, how we grown, and how we relate to the rest of the world." In asking readers to delve into the social and genetic sciences, Young recognizes that there may be difficulties. School systems may regulate experiments that deal with people and animals. Students, Young writes, will need to get pre-approval for their ideas. Still these projects are fresh and interesting and may be worth the red tape if they get a new set of kids excited. Backmatter includes suggestions on how to present your work, resources for more research, and an index. Reviewer: Amy S. Hansen
