Editorial Reviews


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
