Marianne Berkes has a gift for making science fun, and this book is exhibit A. Mother sun and her family of planets spin, roll, ti...lt, blow and whirl around the Sun to the tune of Over in the Meadow. Each of those actions is astronomically correct.

Bright illustrations create an exciting mood, and there is plenty of interesting supplementary information in the back along with tips on related ways to integrate science, art, and literature in the classroom.

Salmon Stream Named a prestigious CBC/NSTA Outstanding Science Trade Book, this is a poetic yet accurate description of the life c...ycle of salmon. For kids, it is fun and eye-opening. For teachers, it is a valuable supplement to a unit on water, fish and ocean animals, and the life cycle. Fast-paced prose and brilliant illustrations follow the salmon from their form as eggs in a stream to the wide ocean, eventually making a hazardous journey home to their stream of origin. As in her earlier best-selling book, The Tree in the Ancient Forest, author Carol Reed-Jones uses cumulative verse--a literary technique that is not only enjoyable but suggests how interconnected salmon are with their habitat. At the back is a section on salmon facts and what makes a good habitat for them, teaching the basics of ecology and why clean streams and waters are so important.

This second book in the series for upper elementary and middle school children introduces great conservationists who explored the oceans and worked to save otters, whales, sharks, sunfish, and other inhabitants of the deep. In almost all cases they were scientists as well as activists and authors, and their passion made a lasting contribution to the world. This volume includes William Beebe, who climbed into a bathysphere and discovered exotic life more than a half mile down; Archie Carr, who discovered the plight of the sea turtles and did much to save them; Jacques Cousteau, inventor of the scuba diving equipment and brought ocean life to televisions across the world; Margaret Wentworth Owings, founder of Friends of the Sea Otter and tireless crusader for marine wildlife; Eugenie Clark, the Shark Lady who showed that sharks are not mindless killers; Roger Payne, who discovered that whales communicate by singing; Sylvia Earle, pioneer Jim Suit and submersible diver; and Tierney Thys, who unraveled the mysteries of the ocean sunfish and brought expanded ocean awareness to TV audiences.
