Format: Hardcover

Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 2

What did you like about the book? I liked the alternative book format, combining a “newspaper/chronicle format” outlining scientific discoveries with a large 6 foot Timeline to post on  wall for children. The magnifier is very handy as the dense print and extremely detailed timeline is hard to read. Motivated readers can evaluate their knowledge with a Quiz at the end.

Anything you didn’t like about it? The concept of a timeline outlines the enormous amount of information clearly, but it relies on the reader being able to comprehend many general scientific concepts.

To whom would you recommend this book?  STEM based teachers at the elementary level, children and parents that enjoy science

Who should buy this book? Elementary school librarians, STEM teachers, parents and children who love history, environmental science

Where would you shelve it ? Natural History, Science and Nature, The History of Science

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No

Reviewer’s Name, Library (or school), City and State: Diane Neylon, Boston College, Chestnut Hill, MA
