“...This discussion of a familiar material is outstanding because�striking photographs�can be found on�each page in the narrative of making metal. The photography is up-close, and�children will easily see what the text is explaining...I can't wait to use Everyday Materials:�Metal with my younger students in a whole-group setting.�It's appropriate for�kindergarten through grade 3 and has a reading level of�K–2, with Accelerated Reader support.�Teachers will be able to use this outstanding book for years to come when discussing metal,�metal products, the�metal-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
