Editorial Review

A noteworthy review of Step-By-Step Experiments from Children's Bookwatch on May 1, 2012

Cover: Step-by-Step Experiments with Electricity

A premier publisher of non-fiction ‘books in series’ specifically designed for school libraries and classrooms, one of the newest twelve volume sets and enthusiastically recommended is The Child’s World series ‘Step-By-Step Experiments’ and provides young readers in grads 1 through 4 with simple but effective introductions to the scientific process. A specific volume addresses electricity, insects, life cycles, light and vision, magnets, matter, plants, simple machines, soils, sound, taste and digestion, and the water cycle. Each individual 32-page book includes a profusion of colorful photography and instructive illustrations perfectly coordinated with an informative and ‘student friendly’ text. Each book comes with a reinforced library binding and is enhanced with the inclusion of a table of contents, a glossary of key words and phrases, sources for further research (including thematically relevant web sites), and a comprehensive index. Although each individual titles is available separately ($28.50 List / $19.95 Library), school and community libraries are well advised to achieve a significant cost savings by obtaining the twelve volume ‘Step-By-Step Experiments’ set (9781609734798) in its entirety ($342.00 List / $239.40 Library). Incidentally, ‘Step-By-Step Experiments’ is ideal as a home schooling curriculum supplement!
