Children's Literature Review
"This is one of the best inclusive science books around. It is dense with information yet an enjoyable read. It will teach the reader about primary resources, an essential part of research and study. Included are short synopses of important scientists in history, including woman. The book is like a short course on the nature of science and includes twenty-five thought provoking projects . . . QRL codes are included and you can find the website addresses after the excellent glossary. Throughout the book are sidebars with Words2Know. Although standard measurements are used in the book there is a metric conversion chart at the end. This book meets STEM and NGSS standards. Graphs are used in a way that readers will learn from and hopefully model. Not only is this book needed in school libraries but would be a great addition for every third grade science teacher on up."
