Research Notes
“I’ve written about birds before. The challenge here was thinking about how they fly in a whole new way. The book answers the question in the title in the final chapter, so I had to figure out how to give students all the background information they needed in a fun and interesting way."
“If you need science material to support a standards-based inquiry science program, look no further. This is an accurate and well-organized series. Questions propel the text in these books. Each title contains an activity for a hands-on science experience that can be done with easily acquired items. The illustrations expand the text and reinforce topics covered. Every title in this series will appeal to the curious child who always asks why and how."
