“...The discussion in this text is outstanding because striking photographs�are shown on�each page in the narrative of making glass. The photography is up-close, and�children will easily see what the text is explaining...I can't wait to use Everyday Materials: Glass with my younger students in a whole-group setting. It's appropriate for�kindergarten through grade 3, has a reading level of�K-2,�and is an�Accelerated Reader book.�Teachers will be able to use this outstanding book for years to come when discussing glass, glass products, the glass making process, and recycling.” —National Science Teacher's Association, 02/09 “Everyday Materials is an�ideal series of�informational books�to use with younger students in a whole-group setting or at a station to support content in technology, engineering, or physical properties.” — National Science Teacher's Association, 01/09 “This series introduces common materials in an engaging style. The text and photos work together, progressing from the definition of the material to how it is manufactured and what it is used for. Bordered insets are used to expand the topic, encourage application of the new knowledge, or pose questions for exploration....The large type, bright photos, and uncluttered layout will allow large and small group use.” —School Library Journal, 11/08
