Reviews

National Science Teachers Association Recommends
“A lovely book for the middle school grades. As a woman scientist, I like that it is part of a series on Girls in Science, and it was well–written enough that I wish I had the other books in the series!”  Read the complete review online.

Praise for other titles by Anita Yasuda:

“. . . A wide range of ages will be able to take something away from this entertaining and useful title.”

Explore Natural Resources!
National Science Teachers Association
“Does your approach to teaching natural resources consist of talking to students, showing a video, and maybe inviting a guest speaker? If you are ready for something more engaging, Explore Natural Resources! With 25 Great Projects is a required science resource . . . The greatest strength of this book may be that it is visually appealing. Every page is attractive and comprised of pictures, vocabulary, and text that will not only inform but entertain the eye. Teachers should consider teaching one chapter per week, which will allow them to have enough time to supervise the elementary aged students. This is the perfect activity book to instruct and demonstrate the immediate interconnectedness humans have with natural resources and the world.”
