Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Two accessible titles in the Vicki Cobb Science Play series by veteran educator Vicki Cobb, illus. by Julia Gorton, teach science basics. In I Get Wet, hands-on experiments and clear examples help youngsters discover the intricacies of H2O. I See Myself explores what makes mirrors work.

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Reviewed with Vicki Cobb's I See Myself.

PreS.-Gr.2. Cobb takes a fresh approach to science for young children in the Science Play series. Each book introduces a single, simple concept through words, pictures, and experimentation (or as the series title would have it, "play"). Indeed, Cobb encourages adults reading the book aloud to put the book aside whenever an activity is suggested and let the child explore and discover before continuing reading. The bold graphics feature strong, simplified forms, colors, and patterns as well as the creative use of typography to represent, say, the path of a bouncing beam of light or the shape of a drop of water dripping from a faucet. In I Get Wet, a boy learns some of the properties of water through pouring it into different containers, observing it drip and flow, and trying to absorb it with waxed paper and paper toweling. I See Myself features a girl who finds out a little about vision, light, and reflection by playing with a mirror, a flashlight, and a bouncing ball. The crisp, upbeat look of the digital illustrations contrasts sharply with the often posed and tired-looking photographs routinely used in books of science experiments for young children. This playful approach reflects the enthusiastic tone in Cobb's text, which encourages children to discover for themselves the properties of water and light. An eye-opening debut for a promising series. Carolyn Phelan

Format: Library Binding
'I Get Wet' is an inspiring book that triggers scientific curiosity not only in preschoolers but adults as well! I started reading the book to my then 3 year-old in the living room and next thing I know, the entire family moved to the kitchen to perform the series of experiments suggested in the book. The experiments show simple concepts on water properties that are easily understood by kids even at an early age.

I generally like Vicki Cobb books. This & the experiments are good for is meant for parents to read with their children (I assume non-readers). The art is engaging & the experiments are good for young children. It is a good book to take out from the library, but I wouldn't bother purchasing it as a parent ... perhaps a day-care provider might find more use for it.

If you want to really know if this book is for you, go to your local library. If they don't have a copy there is always the option of the Inter-Library Loan procedure (books usually take about 3 weeks to arrive). I almost always preview books from the library before purchasing ... it has saved a lot of disappointment.
