Review quote

School Library JournalEye-catching and informative title that explain[s] such things as how bats see in the dark and why soap makes bubbles. . . . Supportive "Did you know..." text boxes accompany each response, providing supplementary fun-filled fact. Children will find the silly characters in the illustrations amusing and appreciate how well they enact the subject matter. . . . Educators can use [it] as trivia [a] guide for enrichment activities in general science lessons. Library Media ConnectionInquiring minds will enjoy reading these Q&A texts and perhaps learn some science along the way. . . . Teachers could use these questions as discussion starters or journal entries. Students could research the answers to practice library skills.
