Children's Literature Comprehensive Database - Susan Borges

"Cleverly presented in a realistic story format, this text makes complex scientific concepts about the physical properties of matter come alive for young readers. Children immediately relate to Mr. Chen, the appealing science teacher, and his students who are participating in an elementary science lesson. There is a science scavenger hunt in Mr. Chen’s classroom and the search is on to solve a mystery riddle. This appealing text is one in a series of “Read-It Readers” science books about physical science and elementary school-aged readers will be captivated by the text format which encourages self-discovery, problem solving, and informed thinking about the concepts that are presented by the main characters of the book. In or out of the elementary classroom, students will find this lively and engaging book to be a great source of information about physical science and the world around them. Teachers will want to add this book to their classroom library because it supports the national curriculum standards related to science." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
