Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Deborah Zink Roffino
If students cannot find a science project in Why?, they need only turn to the other books in the series, How? or When? or What? Every tool and tidbit essential to scientific excitement is included. The drudgery aspect is eliminated as the authors have tapped into subjects that concern and appeal to ages 8-13: magnets, invisible ink, litmus papers, crystals, tadpoles and even fiber optics. The sanctioned science fair outline is utilized. With clear instructions, simple diagrams and breadth of disciplines, this paperback series wins a first place ribbon.
