Understanding Photosynthesis with Max Axiom, Super Scientistby Liam O'Donnell, Richard Dominguez, Charles Barnett
Follows the adventures of Max Axiom as he explains the science behind photosynthesis. Written in graphic-novel format.
Children's Literature - Kathie M. JosephsDid you know that planting one tree produces enough oxygen to support four people a year? This is just one of the facts the reader will learn. I think back to when I was in school and remember having good teachers, access to encyclopedias, libraries, and even doing my homework after being gently prodded by my parents. However, I certainly never had books like this one that takes a science concept such as photosynthesis, adding a super hero who can shrink to the size of an atom, mixes in excellent graphics and presents a scientific concept in a reader friendly way. This book is written in graphic format that is a favorite of mine! It makes it perfect for students who are reluctant readers and never seem to finish a book on their own. Young adults who want to read anything they can get their hands on will also enjoy the graphics and fast paced text. The full-color graphics make an enormous impact on the story. Red boxes with pertinent vocabulary words and meanings are included throughout the book. Vocabulary has been well selected and this book is an excellent resource that could be used for writing a summary, a book report, or a source for research. At the end of the book, the author includes several pages with more facts, a Glossary, Read More Section, Internet-sites and an Index. This book should be in all science classrooms, school libraries, and added to reference books at home. I do highly recommend this book.
