A noteworthy review of Science Definitions from Library Media Connection on March 1, 2011
This series of scientific basics will appeal to a wide audience of readers with its attractive layout and captivating images. Each title focuses on a specific science concept and how it applies to the readers’ everyday experiences. Text is paired with vibrant photographs in order to illustrate key concepts, and each photograph is captioned with additional facts. Important words are printed in boldface and included in a glossary. Each title also concludes with a graphic that illustrates further application of the concept, such as ways the reader can help save energy. The text in Splash! falls short on description, but that is made up by images that will enthrall readers. Overall, this series will whet the appetite of students interested in understanding the world around them.
