Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Julia Beiker
Even though we have tried for the past two decades to eliminate the paper trail though electronics, this book reminds us the about the importance of paper even during an age of going "green." On page eight inside the blue box, we learn about the writing system—the time line dates back to 3500 B.C, and then on the next page the reader learns that modern paper originated in China. Of course, we know that some paper starts out as trees, but do you know that paper can also be made from straw, bamboo, and even sugar cane? Timber is trucked to a factory where it is turned into a pulp that is made into paper. Did you know that crayons are actually a by-product of the papermaking process? Be alert for the interesting facts inside the blue boxes. From the factory, the paper goes to the shelves in a variety of different products from books to wallpaper to photographs. Without paper, we could still be trading beads instead of exchanging paper dollars. The final pages of the book shows the reader how to preserve trees and ways to recycle. The author combines vibrant photographs with easy-to-read text to create a student friendly research book. The "best part of the book" appears on page twenty where the reader learns how to make their own paper. As in many reference books, the "glossary, find out more section," and the index appear in the back of the book. This book is part of the "The Science of Materials" series. Reviewer: Julia Beiker
