Wet and Dry

Wet and Dry

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
K-Gr 4-A pleasant mixture of illustrations, full-color photographs, and text boxes makes these series entries especially appealing. Teachers will appreciate the clear, concise comparisons of inverse concepts: big and small, floating and sinking, wet and dry. Unlike the "Picture Science" series (Watts), these books combine information with experimentation. Each two-page spread presents easy-to-read captions next to pertinent photos and illustrations and ends with an experiment. The content ranges from a simple explanation of why fish need to stay in water to interesting trivia on how many gallons of water a camel drinks. Conversational texts speak directly to readers, often in question form. Experiments are primarily hands-on investigations of the concepts presented. Many are simple enough for kindergartners, while others would challenge fourth graders. This series stands out for its visually attractive layout and its juxtaposition of opposite concepts.-Jackie Hechtkopf, Talent House School, Fairfax, VA
