School Library Journal - Extaordinary Engineering

Gr 1-3–Readers are introduced to remarkable feats of modern engineering in this awe-inspiring series. Basic scientific concepts, such as inertia, centripetal force, and kinetic energy, are appropriately defined for students using straightforward language and simple sentence structure. Crisp white pages provide the background for the text, and when they are paired with the abundant colorful photos, the effect is striking. Sidebars that encourage critical thinking, particularly conceptualizing, analyzing, and synthesizing data, are found throughout each volume, while “Try This!” will bolster students’ understanding of various scientific principles through experimentation and hands-on learning. VERDICT A solid introduction to engineering concepts that will appeal to lower elementary schoolers.
