Reviewed in the United States on November 14, 2008Format: PaperbackI love this book. Examples of chapters are Airplanes, Measurement, Energy and Motion, Force and Movement, Volcanoes, Trees, Reptiles… and more. Each subject has a storybook suggested to read and then there are tons of hands on activities offered to go along with the storybook. This book is along the same lines as Five in a Row. Terrific for lower elementary children.
