Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - James Rutkowski
Leading off the series "Step into Science," the author introduces the young reader to the scientific method. Filled with pictures, illustrations, and examples, the easy to read books in this series follow a format that includes historical references, simple experiments to do, and questions to answer. The first in the series provides a brief explanation of the steps of the scientific method, leads one through the how and why of doing experiments and how the results further our understanding of the world around us. It provides examples about asking specific questions, conducting surveys, and separating fact from fiction. Two simple experiments for home or classroom illustrate the concept, use safe materials, and have easy to follow directions. Sections about keeping a journal, a glossary, and a time line of discoveries add to the reader's understanding. The following books in this series provide a deeper explanation of each of the steps in the scientific method. The set is a great reference for the classroom or the young child interested in science fairs or conducting experiments. Reviewer: James Rutkowski
