School Library Journal - Ragan O’Malley

"This series covers a surprisingly large amount of ground in each title, introducing the topics at their most basic level and increasing the complexity of the information. For example, Sports begins by discussing "Moving Your Body;" it goes on to present the role of muscles, blood circulation, and nutrition in body movements before covering how forces, including gravity and friction, are at play in athletics. It ties things up with a discussion of materials used in sports equipment and clothing. In every volume, selected words are bolded in the text and defined at the bottom of the page, as well as in a glossary. Titles end with a simple experiment focusing on one aspect of the topic being discussed. The design is not visually exciting, though there are plenty of color photos and diagrams. Solid introductions. - Ragan O’Malley, Saint Ann’s School, Brooklyn, NYSchool Library Journal April 2012 Issue" - School Library Journal

Omaha Public Schools - Lucille Saunders

"A nonfiction book that is one in a series discovering the science behind many items that touch us in our daily lives. This particular one examines the origins of the printing press, the telephone and the television. The book leads the reader to what we experience today – wireless communications. The illustrations are magnificent and help the reader understand the concepts presented. – Lucille Saunders, Retired Omaha Public Schools 11/4/2012" - Omaha Public Schools
