“I recommend the Investigate Science series because of the author’s constructivist approach. The books set the stage for beginning readers to actively use inquiry skills within their science content. Author Melissa Stewart places a premium on blending reading and science inquiry skills. The kid-friendly text invites the reader to observe using all five senses, gather data, organize data, and make charts and drawings to describe what they observed. Based on the observations and data, the reader predicts outcomes to the Doing More activities within the book. The science content is accurate and age appropriate ... This is what learning and teaching elementary science should be!"
