Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
What a great idea! Taking a scientific concept, mixing it with a super hero who can shrink to the size of an atom, adding fantastic graphics, writing that is easy to understand, and then putting it together in a 32-page book that is reader friendly. 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. Don't you think it would be boring to eat the exact food item every day of your life with no changes? I certainly do. But it doesn't seem to bother the koala bear because he only eats eucalyptus leaves. In fact, if the eucalyptus tree were to disappear so would he. This is just one fact found in the More About Forces and Motion section at the end of the book. Also included by the author are 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.
