Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—A few misleading sentences are unfortunately included in these otherwise stellar introductions to scientific topics. For example, Gears states that "There are many wheels and axles on a car," and Magnets asserts that "A magnet can move the heaviest objects." Beautifully illustrated with full-color photographs, the accessible texts are for the most part informative and yet not overwhelming. Photographs range from the familiar bubble gum to the unfamiliar spittlebug and include an amazing photo of iron filings arranged along the energy lines of a magnet. The text size, jaunty placement, and few sentences per page are perfect for early readers. Purchase to supplement larger collections.
Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
Big splashy photographs show all the fine points of seeds in this nonfiction text in the "Science Starts" series. A group of seeds are shown on a double page spread with one sentence on each page that tells how each seed is a living plant waiting to grow. Colorful photos show walnuts, watermelons, and sunflowers. Green peas in their pods, seeds from a maple tree, and dandelion seeds are additional examples of types of seeds. One of the ways seeds travel is explained with the example of a coconut seed that floats from the ocean to the beach where it will sprout. Another page shows seeds stuck to a dog's fur riding to a new location. How seeds are made is put in simple terms that discuss the process of pollination. An excellent photo shows a seed beginning to grow and the roots pushing into the soil. On the last few pages, the seeds become seedlings and then become plants. This is a good resource for science curriculum because of its use of beginning science vocabulary and concepts. The photos help make this text appealing, and the simple explanations make it easy for children to understand. An early reader may need some help with the specific science words that are defined in the glossary. Also included is a table of contents, a "Read More" section, Internet sites, and an index.
