Gr 4–8—A solid look at the science and technology side of popular topics paired with writing prompts, research ideas, critical thinking skills, and even some ethics questions. With covers adorned with the likes of Spiderman, readers will be drawn right in. Each volume takes a logical approach to the topic (Warriors takes a historical look at the evolution of war weapons and tactics, while Sports is divided by type of athletic endeavor, both integrate the key concepts and principles of physics). The linking of science to other academic skills throughout the series is a refreshing and rewarding feature. The concluding "Stop and Think" sections refer to and expand on topics introduced in the main text.
