Praise for Explore Solids and Liquids! by Kathleen M. Reilly

Science Books & Films

++: Highly Recommended
"The author did an outstanding job of making the concepts of molecules and atoms understandable for an elementary student, and these concepts are critical to the discussion of density. Difficult content was developed in a logical sequence and there is a good flow of ideas and experiments within the book. This book is an excellent resource for an elementary science classroom studying forms of matter."

"Is there a future doctor in the house? Or maybe you have someone with an interest in knowing what is going on in the fantastic and often taken for granted human body. This new title from Nomad Press fills in all the details from head to toe. Even adults will learn a thing or two. . . . This is no dry textbook approach. Instead readers will enjoy the nice balance of text, drawings and photos. The explanations of each area of the body were the clearest descriptions I've ever come across and perfect for the target audience. . . .What's even more fun are the special hands-on activities at the end of each chapter.

Get a head start this summer on this science-based book for kids. You'll be ahead of your peers when school starts up again in the Fall."

School Library Journal

"Reilly blends human body facts with activities to create a useful and appealing STEM book. Starting with the cardiovascular system and going through reproduction, genetics, diseases, and immunity, eight chapters offer information and projects that aim to please. Projects include making your own edible cell, making your own joints, and making your own inheritance model. The interesting tasks are easily accomplished with readily available materials. Sporadic, three-paneled cartoons, while pedestrian, add clarity to the easy-to-read text. An extensive glossary, index, and list of resources are appended. The title offers many illustrations, and videos are linked through QR codes. VERDICT A first purchase for public and school libraries. Fine activities for home and classroom that will grab the attention of budding scientists"

School Library Connection
"This book takes readers on an interactive tour of the human body, with eight chapters covering main elements of the cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, musculaskeletal, integumentary, nervous, reproductive, and immune systems. The book as a conversational tone and is filled with illustrations, photographs, charts, and comic strips to keep readers engaged wit the content. . . Teachers of life science, health or human anatomy will find this book to be a thorough and fun resouces. It is also well suited to studens in virtual or homeschool environments, who will appreciate the interactive elements and ideas for experiments they can perform independently. Recommended"
