School Library Journal - 04/01/2014 Gr 4–6—Marching in lockstep with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), these episodes, though fictional, not only portray a series of specifically detailed scientific investigations conducted largely by young people, but even feature highlighted keywords in several of the narratives drawn from the NGSS list of best practices. The scenarios range from two young skygazers trying to prove that a certain rock is a meteorite to an epidemiologist's daughter tracking down the origin of a local flu epidemic. The procedures are laid out in clear, easily imitable steps, illustrated with a mix of scientific photos or diagrams and encouraging pictures of young researchers at work, and capped by relatively generous lists of further resources on the given topic. - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
