Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Early on in this science resource book the author points out to her readers that "You are human so you are a scientist." This belief, that mankind's innate curiosity will drive us toward ever more complex scientific inquiry, lies at the heart of this work. Divided into five conveniently color-coded and tabbed sections, Datafiles provides glimpses into some of the current hot topics in science. Much of the information touches upon amazing developments that have occurred or are likely to unfold in the area of scientific research and development. For example, nanotechnology now allows scientists and technicians to construct "machines" so small that they consist of only a few atoms. Such technological breakthroughs open the door to the creation of inventions that would overshadow anything thought of by science fiction writers. Environmental research, medical advances and revolutionary developments in transportation are also presented. In addition to the cleverly constructed text, this book features ample and amazing color illustrations. Readers with even a cursory interest in science will find something to tickle their intellectual fancy when they open this thoughtful book. 2000, Silver Dolphin Books, $15.95. Ages 10 up.
