"...These titles can be used to supplement a science series, or they could be used by students for simple science fair experiments. This series is complete, with clear illustrations that I find to be most important in an experiment book. Recommended." —Library Talk, 09/02 "...a superbly presented series from Crabtree Publishing specifically designed for young readers ages 8 to 14...Each book is written with simple clear text enhanced with full color photographs and illustrations. Highly recommended for homeschooling, classroom, and community library reference collections, each book is further enriched for students with a "user friendluy" glossary and index..." —Midwest Book Review, 02/02
