Category Description for Gail Gibbons Science Books

I was thrilled to see that these wonderful science books are once again available! Brilliantly illustrated, with striking photos and diagrams combined with clearly explained science facts made these a family favorite for years. In fact, our beloved copy of the Moon Book was held together by packing tape until my son finally outgrew his love of space in middle school.

Written by popular children's author Gail Gibbons, each book in the series provides younger children an excellent primer in a wide-range of science topics. Don't let the term "primer" scare you off! The information presented is foundational to the topical study of science within each book. Page counts vary from 28-32 pgs. Most are paperback with the exception of Surrounded by Sea, which is hardcover. From a secular publisher, you will find the occasional evolutionary references which may make for interesting family discussion. ~Deanne
