Gr 5–7—These seven titles offer highly appealing science content aimed for elementary and middle school students. The books cover topics in the natural sciences, biology, chemistry, physics, and the scientific method with easy to understand examples. Illustrated with eye-catching, colorful photographs, maps, and information diagrams, the series makes science concepts tangible for intermediate readers. The structure and formatting of the books also have curricular appeal. Keyword vocabulary is clearly bolded and defined in the glossary section. Moreover, each volume contains a group of comprehension questions and suggestions for activities related to the content. Purchased as a set, this series makes a good fit for public libraries with Spanish-reading children. Spanish-speaking parents would also find the books ideal for reading with their children, as would teachers in bilingual classrooms.—Lettycia Terrones, California State University, Pollak Library, Fullerton , CA
