"…an excellent source for teachers or students to use to get a grasp on these scientific concepts."

Book Buzz, February 2014

"There are clear explanations from the author, who gives guidance on helping children explore the questions. The format makes it easy to set up lessons that incorporate inquiry . . . The book is visually appealing to children . . . This book could be used in a science center and included in a classroom library, providing nonfiction for children to use to explore these concepts on their own. The book could also help in building a home school science connection; parents could use this book to help explain these concepts to their children."

National Science Teachers Association Recommends Web site, posted September 11, 2008
