Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Sid left his ice pop on the table and now all that is left is an orange puddle. He wonders why things can't stay frozen and why frozen things melt. After breakfast Dad helps Sid make two more ice pops. When Sid goes to school he asks his friends if they have ever had a frozen treat melt before they ate it. Most of them have had that experience. Teacher Susie helps the kids understand the process called reversible change where something can change back and forth. So off they go to the Super Fab Lab. Teacher Susie has put a selection of fruits into water and frozen them. The questions posed are how quickly and by what means can the block of ice with the fruit be made available to the kids. So the cycle of ice melting and freezing becomes a topic on the school bus ride and Sid and Gabriella get to eat the ice pops that Sid and his dad created before he went to school. The lesson is palatable and easy enough for kids to remember. The illustrations look like Claymation and appear to be stills from the TV show. The family is particularly unattractive as far as this review is concerned. Part of the "Sid the Science Kid" series which is based on the TV show produced by the Jim Henson Company.
