Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6?As their titles indicate, these books are written specifically to help children complete their homework assignments. Therefore, they are best used as circulating materials and not as reference books. None of the material is presented in-depth and the books aren't meant to be used for reports, but in terms of answering specific questions, introducing concepts, or providing simple explanations they are competently done. All three volumes have thorough tables of contents that are easy to use; large print size and lots of white space; numerous charts, maps, and graphs; and color-coded sound bites of information. Each page has a handy sidebar that indicates what can be found and thus provides a shortcut for someone leafing through in search of an answer. The indexes are also complete. American History is enriched with colorful graphics and archival photos. Answers to the most commonly asked homework questions abound, and they are easily accessible and clearly stated.?Suzanne Hawley, Laurel Oak Elementary School, Naples, FL

Format: Paperback
This book, like the others in the series, is full of bright pictures, diagrams and charts.
The chapters are:
What's Life All About? (with an easy to understand description of the various plant and animal kingdoms)
The Animal Kingdom
The Plant Kingdom
Ecology and the Landscapes of Life
Planet Earth
Outer Space
The Physical World
The basic concepts are simply explained, with helpful graphics, so it is very easy to understand.
From the history of plants on earth to the effects of erosion on the earth and oceans, to the table of elements and the laws of motion, every concept is easy to grasp.
This is a wonderful book, and my kids really enjoy it.
Highly recommended for children from 2nd through 8th grade. (Although the book says 4 - 6 grades.)

I am an educator, and in my opinion, this book is an excellent, entertaining resource chockful of scientific information. It covers topics in biology, earth science, chemistry and even physics. The color, interesting illustrations are well done and informative.

I just purchased this book and I am using it as a supplement to Jerry Bobrow's CSET muliple subject test prep book (Cliffs Test Prep) and it is great! It's written in a simple language, and contains all sorts of review,pictures, charts, etc. It has been MANY years since I have studied science and this so far is helping me remember all the material neccessary for passing the test.

Please note that this is the 1998 edition, so it features seriously outdated graphics. I have the 2003 editions of the Geography and American History in this Everything You Need to KNow about .. series. The information is still pertinent, just not as attractive as the later editions.

Excellent reference series for any elementary student, though.

I have elementary age children that some text books can be a little too detailed for. This book gives good explanations without going into too much detail - but still gives them enough to understand the subject. It also follows the science curriculum we use really well even though they are not associated texts.

I purchased this book to help me refresh my memory about science topics as I prepared for the National Board Assessment Center exercises. I like the format of the book--easy to read, good illustrations--and it did help me to prepare. I teach language arts, so I needed some reminders of basic concepts and ideas. This would be a super book for children, too, of course.

I purchased the entire set of these books "Everything You Need..." and find that they are the BEST, absolutely the BEST resources I have found in a compact book. I highly recommend these books, not only for homeschooling families but for anyone who wants to "know more"!!

This is a great quick-reference for upper-elementary students, teachers, and parents alike! This book provides short, concise, and clear answers to basic questions about 4-6th grade science subjects.
