Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-8-VanCleave teaches young readers about food groups, vitamins and minerals, the relationship between energy and food, how to read nutrition labels, and more. The text is straightforward, with good use of scientific terms. Each of the 25 chapters starts off with background information, but the heart of this book is the array of activities that relate to real-life situations. Most will need adult supervision, making this a great resource book for science teachers, but adaptable to use at home. Some representative activities include "Uncoiled," which determines why egg whites become white and foamy when beaten; "Gassy," which studies the results of combining baking powder and baking soda with liquids; and "Foamy," which demonstrates how fat is broken down in the body. This is a good update to Foodworks: Over 100 Science Activities and Fascinating Facts That Explore the Magic of Food from the Ontario Science Center (Addison-Wesley, 1987).
