Description of AnnotationsThe books annotated in this volume are arranged alphabetically within broad
subject areas which are further subdivided into smaller topics. In keeping with the American Association for the Adavancement of Science's position as the largest
general science organization in the United States, the scope of materials included
here goes beyond the life and physical sciences to encompass mathematics,
engineering and technology, medicine, and the social and behavioral
sciences. Where appropriate, the subject areas contain a special section devoted to
hands-on science books. Here we have placed those books which are primarily
collections of experiments or activities for hands-on instruction to assist readers
who are looking specifically for these kinds of resources. However, many
children's science books now contain some element of experimentation, although
not necessarily as a primary focus.The citations for individual books contain the bibliographic information
supplied by the publisher at the date of publication. The various parts of the
citation and the abbreviations used are as follows:1)
