Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 3^-5. These volumes in the Kaleidoscope--Earth Sciences series look at elements in the natural world--minerals, fossils, water, and rocks--using photographs, drawings, and graphics to enhance the simple text. Minerals begins with the question, "Have you ever tasted a mineral?" Fossils uses a series of drawings to show how a dying fish can become a fossil. After some basics, the books delve deeper into their subjects, covering some fairly complex topics, such as mineral replacement. Good support material for children studying the earth sciences, with enough photos to attract the interest of browsers. --Heather Hepler"
