Reviews

Fun, accessible, and teeming with potential for extended inquiry. --Booklist although the book does include information for teachers and parents on science standards and the concepts behind the experiments, kids don't need to see this as homework

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.
