Editorial Reviews

Review

Winner of the 2008 Teachers' Choice Award for Children's Books --Learning Magazine, September 2007

Solid science and decent graphic-novel style illustrations are the basis for the series.  In Forces and Motion, to represent motion, some of the illustrations are blurred which may be off-putting to some.  The More About section of each book sums up the topic.  Inset boxes address vocabulary, interesting facts, and famous people.  Web sites are accessed through FactHound.  The action and story line are easy-to-follow, even for those not raised on graphic novels.  These should be a welcome addition to a collection and will be enjoyed by students who like graphic formats, science, and ESOL and Special Education populations.  Bibliography. Glossary.  Index.  Recommended. --Library Media Connection; Vol. 26, No. 2; Page 88, October 2007

Finalist of the 2007 Distinguished Achievement Award --Association of Educational Publishers, June 2007

Format: Paperback
Bought this for my 5 year-old son at the Exploratorium gift shop in San Francisco. I knew he was a bit young to understand a lot of the book, but we had played with making waves in the pool and I had explained to him that sound and light work the same way. So when I saw the book and the sound waves in the illustrations, I thought it would be a nice way to expand his understanding. We read it last night and he really enjoyed it. He liked how the sound waves were coming out of machines, people and animals and the book nicely explained amplitude and frequency. I didn't read to him the technical parts about frequency and Hz because I thought it might bore him, but there wasn't too much about it in the book. We both enjoyed the illustrations about echo and sound dampening, and since he had played with both of them in real life, he now has a visual understanding of how they both work. My son, being 5, liked the fact that Max Axiom looked like a superhero. He is eager to read tonight the other 2 books in the series that I bought at the Exploratorium. I think this would be appropriate for kids at any level of elementary school and makes science more fun. I came to Amazon to look for more books in this series!

These books are really fun to read. I have also been impressed with the accuracy of the books as well. I also like that the main character (Max Axiom) continues through all of the books as kind of a guide. I would rate these as the next step up beyond "the Magic School Bus" for science loving kids. It may also spark and interest in science and reading for reluctant readers. A child reading at the 3rd grade level should be able to read these books independently, but they can easily be read aloud to non or struggling readers.

The idea of these books is great, but they need to make the book longer with more of a plot so that children have time to get into the adventure and learn the information.

My wife uses these in her 5th grade classroom and the students really like them. She found it especially useful with reluctant readers.
