Maybe it is my 'old age' as a homeschool mom, but it seems that most elementary science books are light on science information but overwhelmed with childish illustrations and story lines, which is the main reason I love this impressive series. Presenting each topic in a 2-page spread, children will be captivated by the vibrant illustrations and clearly explained scientific text. Adding to the educational value, the back of the book contains notes for parents and teachers, craft activities, quizzes, weblinks, fascinating facts, and other supplemental resources. From a secular publisher, occasional references to evolution are evident. Real educational content and meticulous graphic images, this series meets the growing needs of your young Scientist! 56 pgs. sc. ~ Deanne
