Reviews

Pennsylvania School Librarians Association - Ro Becker

"Join Super Scientist Max Axiom in adventures covering various science concepts in kid-friendly “graphic novel” format. These books are sure to appeal to middle level kids and teachers with their easy-to-follow story lines and clear explanations of science concepts. Each book includes additional facts, a glossary, book and internet suggestions, and an index. Recommended." - Pennsylvania School Librarians Association

"Here’s a case in which a curriculum-related series (Graphic Science) puts the graphic-novel format to good use. Narrative and images nicely interplay to show the how and why of such basic safety practices as wearing goggles, calling for help when accidents happen, and avoiding contact with unknown substances. The titular character is a buff, bald African American, whose commanding presence is as engaging as it is pedagogical. The science experiments students are shown pursuing as the text moves along are suited to upper-elementary and middle-school curricula. The resources noted for further information are up to date. This will be a good choice for science classes during the opening weeks of the school year. Other Max Axiom books introduce topics such as photosynthesis, food chains, and electricity." - Booklist

"I’m in love – or, better yet, my son is in love! We’ve had the opportunity to review graphic science books on all sorts of topics that are fun and easy to read. Comic book style science sounds really fluffy doesn’t it? Believe it or not, the Max Axiom series is full of “real” science that goes deep enough to be appropriate for any upper elementary/early middle school child. My son is a less-than-zealous textbook reader. (Picture eyes glazing over and giant yawns.) After reading – or being read to – from a textbook, he recalls very little of the information. Over the years, I’ve turned science into hands-on unit studies and supplemented with lots of library books, which has worked quite well. During one of these unit study times, I came across Max Axiom and wanted to know more. I found that Capstone Press offers many, many Max Axiom books, and boy were my son and I excited! Twenty-four books total cover the areas of biology/botany, chemistry, physical and earth science. In each book, Max Axiom (a scientist with super powers), goes on an adventure to learn all about the topic at hand. He can shrink to the size of bacteria and whiz through the human body, or go back in time to learn more about a famous scientist of the past. All of this in a 32 page comic book! (When I say comic book, don’t think of flimsy pages, these are “real” books.) http://thecurriculumchoice.com/2011/07/max-axiom-graphic-science-books/" - Curriculum Choice blog

There are lots of engaging resources available for teaching science to young kids, but one of the best is strangely little known: a terrific and highly entertaining series of science-themed graphic novels from Capstone Press, featuring a super scientist b
