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.
A noteworthy review of Science Definitions from School Library Journal on November 1, 2010
Attractive and succinct, these introductions tackle big topics in a friendly way. Each one opens with short, declarative sentences that provide a poetic sensibility. For example, Soil begins, ‘’Dig it. Plant in it…Spongy, sandy, or sticky—it’s all delightful dirt!’ A final spread personalizes the topic with examples from everyday life, and an illustrated extension explains basic science, such as what dirt is made of. Large, eye-catching photos cover the recto of each spread. One small caption flaw in Push and Pull labels a hard drive as a CD/DVD player. Varying jewel-toned accents are used in headings, highlighted glossary terms, and in a sidebar on each spread. The slightly large trim size will make these good choices for group use.
