I love science but honestly sometimes science curriculum dulls children to sleep with their boring and redundant explanations. Yes, you can add hands on activities to teach through concepts, but sometimes what is needed is a targeted science resource to teach and reinforce the foundational principles of science. This series does a phenomenal job of bringing science and the scientific process to life! Beautiful photographs, well written and understandable text, reading comprehension and extension activities, sight words and vocabulary checks, with a sprinkling of fun facts engages children in the sciences. Here's a fun fact from the Skeletons and Exoskeletons book: Chitin is a strong material that makes exoskeletons hard and crunchy, and is made from sugars bonded together. While this does not make an insect sweet, people say raw or roasted insects can taste like bacon, popcorn, nuts, lemons or even seafood. Feel daring! Purchase a roasted insect for your child to taste; it's not as gross as you may think! 24 pgs. SC. ~ Deanne
