NSTA Recommends - Coralee Smith

"Are you looking for reading that encourages curiosity? This series definitely does that and more! Based on questions that have been asked by children, each book in this series provides developmentally appropriate scientific responses written in child-friendly language. The questions are identified by either the child’s age or grade level, with a geographic location and sometimes a first name. The responses are provided in clear, concise, easy-to-read paragraphs. The illustrations throughout the book add to the overall appeal for children and teachers. The cloud illustrations in this book were particularly child-friendly. Readers discover answers to questions such as: “How does snow form?" "How do tornadoes form?" And, "How fast can wind go?” This book was “kid tested” by a second-grade student who assumed the role of an elementary teacher—asking questions and then reading the answers. She often said: "Oh, my! Did you ever hear of that? Let's find out more together." This made me stop and really think. Isn’t this is what science is all about for children? This book provides the springboard for children to think and learn about science in a non-threatening format that is easy to read and understand. After reading this book, your own students just might develop the habit of questioning as well." - NSTA Recommends
