School Library Journal - Eric Norton, McMillan Memorial Library, Wisconsin Falls, WI

"Using the incredible abilities of the Man of Steel as a launching point into science and engineering concepts, this series combines a high-interest figure with solid, informational content. These volumes don’t attempt to explain the science behind Superman’s fictional abilities but instead compare them to analogous feats in the human, technological, and animal worlds. . . .The bright and detailed graphics are eye-catching and helpful in breaking down potentially complicated concepts. Superman’s image on these covers will promote use by browsers, and the topic specificity could be useful in particular science units." - School Library Journal

NSTA Recommends - Cindi Smith-Walters, biology professor

"The engaging narrative is filled with a mix of comic style and actual pictures. Each 32 page book provides information through an easy to follow story–line that connects real science with Superman Science, and serves as an excellent introduction that will interest students in rudimentary physics (without calling it that!). Chock full of sidebars, fact boxes, and on–page definitions of terms, this appealing series is perfect for the young scientists in your classroom. . . .these attractive, appealing books are both engaging and interesting for readers in grades three through nine. Read any of the four in the series and prepare to be astounded at what you can learn about the super powers of sight, speed, flight, and strength." - NSTA Recommends

Tammy Enz became a civil engineer because of her awe of the massive steel bridges that spanned the Mississippi River. She just had to figure out how they worked. Today, she still likes tinkering and figuring out how things work. When she isn't tinkering, she fixes up old houses and conducts experiments in her garden and kitchen. Most of all, she loves reading books about anything and everything and asking 'why?'
