Latest Reviews

“Science is constantly changing in exciting ways, and these entries in the Science Frontiers series show children the direction in which some scientists are headed. Covering topics that are current and relevant, the engaging text begins with an overview and continues with double-page spreads that introduce related issues and scientific discoveries. Building Better Robots describes what a robot is and gives examples of robot development and how they may be used in the future, including some that assist paralyzed individuals and others inspired by the movement of animals. Curing Cancer explains the cause of this disease, the difficulties in treating it, and experimental technologies underway to combat it, from sensors that ‘sniff’ out cancer in urine to human-made viruses that attack the cancer. Discovering the Origin of Human Life starts with Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution and illuminates ways scientists have learned about how humans have evolved and continue to evolve. Saving Endangered Species discusses why animals become endangered and the programs and technologies scientists employ to protect them, such as cameras in rhinos’ horns to capture poachers and ‘frozen zoos’ of endangered animals’ cells. Accompanying each double-page spread are color photos and numbers-based statistics. An additional fact sheet and glossary round out these volumes. A useful series for beginning research and high-interest browsing.”

“A creative, straightforward, and informative series, 12-Story Library just keeps on giving. The books are well put together with content, pictures, and ‘Think About It’ sections. Each page invites the reader to think more deeply about the issue addressed in the books. Did you ever have a book which you loved to use as a resource but the content needed updating to remain current with our ever-changing world of information and discovery? Well, along with the book, there is a remarkable website which has the latest news articles, videos, Twitter feeds, and blogs designed to accentuate and enhance the learning experience. It includes top editor picks and featured series. In fact, the webpage is so interesting and exciting, I have no doubt that my students and yours could spend valuable class time exploring and learning from it. Along with the book, it is a powerful and invaluable research tool.”
