The absence of grade level labels makes it student-friendly for all levels, including middle school and high school. Another reason to buy this Student Edition in addition to the Teacher/Librarian Edition: the Student Edition contains 30 additional Bonus Poems and detailed black-and-white drawings by Frank Ramspott. NSTA Recommends.

Science Friday, the producer of the weekly radio show, has a great website—so we were honored when they asked us to collaborate with them in preparing a lesson on the topic of scientific inquiry. Enjoy!
Many districts have adopted our books, with curriculum directors buying a full set of our books for each school. We've heard wonderful stories about the PTO or principal buying copies for every teacher, too.
You won't know unless you ask—aim high! (And we'll keep our fingers crossed for you!!!)
