Editorial Reviews


Praise for Rocketry: Investigate the Science and Technology of Rockets and Ballistics with 25 Projects
Children's Literature Review
"3...2...1...blast off! Get ready to learn about rockets and ballistics with hands-on experiments. . . . this book will be essential to science teachers and children who aspire to work for NASA."

Featured in Blast Off! Summer-Learning Challenge, Booklist April 1, 2015
"The Science and History of rocketry are combined with hands-on experiments for a rich exploration of space propulsion. Would be rocket scientists will find a sold launching pad here."

". . . both the hands-on portions and the relatively extensive background information will give would-be rocketeers a strong liftoff."

Vince Huegele, National Association of Rocketry Education
“This book covers rocket history, rocket science, and rocket fun. It’s a comprehensive overview useful for young readers to get them ready to explore the universe”

Sampo Niskanen, developer of the OpenRocket simulation software
“A great introduction to rocketry for children and adults alike. The book combines hands-on experimentation, history, and the science behind rocketry in an inspiring manner.”

Marla Conn, educational consultant
“I love the link to the Space Shuttle Discovery and other primary sources. Great use of questioning to spark curiosity!”

Praise for Forensics: Uncover the Science and Technology of Crime Scene Investigation
Winner 2013 Silver Moonbeam Children's Book Award

Winner 2013 Society of School Librarians International Honor Book Award

"Like other titles in the Inquire and Investigate series, this book focuses on a high-interest topic in a cutting-edge field to reinforce young people’s understanding of the scientific method. . . an appealing and age-appropriate STEM resource."

Clea Koff, forensic anthropologist and author
"Forensics gets at the essence of crime scene investigation. A must-read for any young student interested in how science can help solve crimes.”

James Creecy, DNA Evidence Coordinator, Forensic Science Institute, University of Central Oklahoma
"Carla Mooney did her homework! I particularly enjoyed the experiments at the end of each chapter. As a forensic scientist, educator, and parent I am happy to recommend this introduction to the fascinating world of forensics.”

From the Inside Flap

Do you ever wonder how rockets soar into space? Rocketry: Investigate the Science and Technology of Rockets and Ballistics introduces students to the fascinating world of rocketry and ballistics. Readers discover the history of rocket development, from the earliest fire arrows in China to modern-day space shuttles. They learn how rockets are launched, move through the atmosphere, and return to Earth safely. Exploring the science behind rocket flight, kids see how the forces of thrust, gravity, lift, and drag interact to determine a rocket’s path.

Entertaining illustrations and fascinating sidebars illuminate the topic, while Words to Know, highlighted and defined within the text, reinforce new vocabulary. Projects include building a pneumatic blast rocket and launcher, determining the role of fins in rocket stability, testing a rocket recovery system, and designing a rocket model of the future. Additional materials include a glossary and a list of Internet resources. Combining hands-on activities with physics, chemistry, and mathematics, Rocketry brings fun to learning about the world of rocket science.
