Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Schenell Agee
Intuitively, children know when they are hot and when they are cold. This book uses their intuition and boosts that knowledge to another level, using scientific vocabulary. Temperature, a title in the new "Measure Up" series, focuses on functional applications for young learners. The illustrations and photographs provide a visual image of the material presented. In addition, the bold words throughout the text assist the reader with comprehension. One particular detail is the introduction of each chapter with a ruler (minus the numbers). "Did you know…"type information is displayed in boxes that also resemble a ruler. Conversion charts for temperature in Celsius and Fahrenheit are also included. Sullivan examines the entire realm of the science behind measuring temperature and the specialized instruments that are used. The glossary provides an alphabetical listing of terms specific to temperature to help the reader comprehend the text. Also included are experiments that allow children to transform their home into a science lab with a few household items. Young scientists can gain a deeper knowledge base about temperature in the "Find out more" section of the text. A complete index concludes this series and identifies illustrations by using boldface numbers. With a wealth of knowledge at their fingertips, this is sure to be a book younger readers will warm up to.
