Wrapped in Foil blog - Roberta

"What a better way to get children excited about STEM than having pirates explain scientific concepts? Captain Kidd’s Crew Experiments with Sinking and Floating by Mark Weakland and illustrated by Troy Cummings is an enticing mix of science and pirate high jinx that will capture the most jaded reader (but hopefully not make them walk the plank). . . .perfect for reluctant readers and those who prefer fiction, but is also treats the topic in a fully scientific way that will please budding physicists as well. This book definitely floats to the top of the pile." - Wrapped in Foil blog

Library Media Connection - Bobbye Truitt

"This series is a winner, helping younger children to understand the concepts of physical science. The series breaks down the different areas into easy to understand concepts for young children. Cartoon Character makes each book appealing to younger children, and a variety of font sizes helps to keep the reader’s attention. Large colorful pictures, with characters that children can relate to, help the reader to understand and keep their attention. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
