Reviews

Ithaca Child
“Zoology is the study of everything having to do with animals- what they look like, how they act and behave. It’s a huge field than encompasses everything from wildlife biology to cell biology. If you raise and study snakes, you are one kind of zoologist (herpetologist). Other zoologists might study the effect of climate change on ocean animals, or work at a zoo. ” Read the complete review online.

School Library Connection
“With features such as embedded questions, QR codes to websites with additional information, and tips on how to begin related projects, the books in this series are helpful and relevant for young readers searching for more information on STEM careers. Each title provides background information on the topic of study, followed by individual chapters about leading females in the field. The series aims to help young girls find attainable careers in science-related fields, as well as offer role models to build interest in the careers affiliated with the field. Photographs and illustrations are prevalent, and the text is chunked for easy reading. The “Ask and Answer” questions are perfect for helping students write from text using evidence, and the tip boxes are filled with additional information on the field and ideas that could become projects for both school and home. The format and large print make this series suitable for students as early as 6th grade. Recommended”

Explore Forces and Motion! With 25 Great Projects

National Science Teachers Association (NSTA Recommends)
“Physics is fun with this colorful and informative book for students ages 7–10. Using the theme of motion, the book encourages readers to push, pull, spin, twist, and turn their way to learning basic concepts of force and motion. There are ample activities and projects throughout the book that provide the reader with ways to explore forces and motion and learn basic concepts while having loads of fun. This book would be a great addition to the classroom library or the science curriculum as a textbook.”
