Science Books & Films' Best Books for Children, 1988-91

By Maria Sosa; Shirley M. Malcolm | Go to book overview

Description of Annotations
The 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) Wentworth Lisa 2) (Ed.), 3) Things to Know About. 4) (Illus.; trans.; from the Look Before You Leap Series.) 5) Morristown, NJ: Silver Burdett, 6) (Distr.: James, Inc.), 7) 1985. 8) (c. 1984). 9) 48 pp. 10) $8.96; $4.95 (paper). 11) 84-50439. 12) ISBN 0-382-06781-9; 0-382-06961-7. 13) Index; glossary; C.I.P. 14)EP 15) Annotation
