Reviews

School Library Journal - Eric Norton, McMillan Memorial Library, Wisconsin Falls, WI

"This series makes clever use of a famous superhero to introduce a variety of STEM facts to primary readers. Each of the four volumes takes one category of Batman’s well-known gadgets and presents similar items and concepts from the real world. . . .There are colorful images of both the Caped Crusader and photos of the actual articles mentioned. Recommended for elementary-aged comic book fans, as it will build on a natural curiosity of how Batman is able to accomplish his amazing feats." - School Library Journal

Today, she still likes tinkering and figuring out how things work. When she isn't tinkering, she fixes up old houses and conducts experiments in her garden and kitchen. Most of all, she loves reading books about anything and everything and asking 'why?'
