"Great picture book! Each picture is made with a ton of tiny dots. Throughout the book a small dot will be circled and will tell you that is was the 578,xxx dot and a fact about that number. This book is a great aid for helping children get a grasp and gauge numbers"
"Some kids are readers, tell them something in a story and they will never forget it ... but then they have a hard time with math, well this is the book for them. Great concepts explained for those who lean towards the humanities with amazing stories, history and visual aids"
"Who knew that Science and poetry could be so funny. Lane Smith does an amazing job of taking the traditional nursery rythmes and recreating them into science verses that you will never forget. Can you child learn just about anything if it is set to a song? Then this book (with CD of course) is for you and them!"
"Have you ever had a child look into a microscope and they see nothing? The scope is too dark, they dont know how to look with one eye, it is out of focus ... this book solves all those problems. Great high definition photos of every day items blown up in amazing color. This book can open a childs mind to cells, science, biology and more"
"Amazing close up photography of snowflakes. Did you know that every snow flake is a crystal with six sides. This book (and all of Kenneth George Libbrecht's book) has pictures that are worth a thousand words and thoughts."
"A Visual guide to the periodic chart and every element in the Universe. Each element has pictures of each element and its everyday usage. This book makes it so everyone can understand science and the elements!"
"This book explains light. The who, what, where, when, why and how of light with a great bibliography in the back. I used this book when my son became interested in solar panels. The author explaination and use of visual aids are spot on."
"Are you an educator that brings silk worms to the classroom? If so, this book is a great companion to explain the entire process of how silk is made and silk worm factories. (of course there is a new TEDx talk out there about all the new uses for silk as well but that is a different age category)"
"A wonderful story of girl in Africa who gives up supersition for science. Who said science can be taught to those who will end up majoring in Humanities? This book tells the story of science and you are so caught up in the plot and the survival story that you wont even notice all the science snuck in there."
