These are great science books for elementary school and they are perfect for my first grader.
My grandson started reading to first grade classes at the age of 4 and I credit Branley's work for being a stimulus.
I wanted scientific content explained on a basic level he could understand and read for himself.
I love all of the Let's Read and Find out Science books. They're colorful, age appropriate and heavy on the facts.Published 7 months ago by Peace and Blessings
The words in the book are rather small compared to the details presented.... It's fun to read about but this is probably a book to read to someone rather than read to self.Published 9 months ago by Gayle Lai
Very educational and could easily be adaptable to all ages...
Grandson loves playing with paper clips..introduced him to the magnet to help in picking them up.
