Student objectives are clearly stated for each science theme, followed by a fully annotated list of the best children's books that use science as part of their stories. The authors also describe related activities and follow-up activities that help make reading and learning fun. This book affords you the flexibility to select those activities that best fit your students' instructional needs.
