The Basher Science series has been a favorite since Periodic Table: Elements with Style. The series has grown and each book introduces a new set of characters to help us become familiar with different science topics. Each new term is represented by an animated character that might illustrate characteristics of that term, and has an Asian or Anime look to it. For example, the earth is represented by a gently smiling earth with a wedge lifted out to show the earth's layers, and the sun which is seen as a little person with a glowing sun-head. These books make science terminology accessible to younger children and the visuals help to cement the learning in such a fun and cute way. With Basher Science you get solid, detailed science information with funny, cute, and interesting characters.
