“Beginning with an explanation of why all animals need oxygen and how humans breathe, [Stewart] goes on to discuss some of the ways fish have adapted to life underwater, including swim bladders and gills. Chapters are kept short, and they include follow-up questions that check readers’ comprehension ... Beautiful, full-color, captioned photos appear on nearly every page, breaking up the text and offering visual context ... tailor-made for young report writers."
“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. The illustrations expand the text and reinforce topics covered. Each book provides the reader with an accurate explanation of the phenomena and scientific principles behind the topic. Every title in this series will appeal to the curious child who always asks why and how.”
“Each book takes a common question kids ask and adds plenty of science, yet retains a lively tone.”
