"This is a series that will catch the eye of both the beginning and more advanced reader with its vibrant color pictures and writing which manages to explain in simple words and activities the beginning scientific concepts for each topic. Topics include sound, matter, electricity, light, magnetism, forces and motion. Each double-page spread has pictures of varying sizes with text that is double-spaced for reading ease. There is ample white space on the page so that the reader is not overwhelmed by the text. There is a table of contents that lists the questions and a features section that includes fast facts, a hands-on activity, and Internet sites. With a standard format for the series of asking and then answering the question related of the topic, the authors guide the students’ understanding of the concept. Scattered throughout each book are Fact! boxes that give applied examples of the concept. I found myself reading each page eager to see what hands-on activities or examples the author included. Middle school physical science teachers with challenged readers could also use this series as a resource. Bibliography. Glossary. Index. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
