Buhle, Reviewer, Buhle's Bookshelf These books are some of the most engaging nonfiction books I have ever read! They correlate so well with our science curriculum and the Common Core State Standards. The reason we love them is because they have real-world applications. With Mississippi adopting the new Common Core State Standards, using nonfiction texts is very important. Science, Naturally!'s books are an excellent asset to our teachers' resource libraries! -- Sonya Smith, Science Coordinator, ATOMS2XP (Advancing Teachers of Middle School Science) and IMPACT2 (In-depth Mathematical Practices and Content Teacher Training), Miss. State, MS I have been using your first One Minute Mysteries book as BRAIN activities with my 6th grade science class. It has been such a hit! The students love them because they are challengingpuzzles to be solved with their peers. They compete enthusiastically to solve each mystery before their classmates. I love them because each mystery kick-starts their brains into a critical thinking, problem solving mode in just minutes at the beginning of each class. The scenarios stimulate wonderful scientific debates among my students. They are a fun strategy for the students to apply their science knowledge to real world problems. This next book is as riveting as the original! I look forward to adding it to my classroom resources. Thanks again for creating this wonderful addition to science teaching and learning! -- Margie Hawkins, 6th Grade Science Teacher, Winfree Bryant MS, Lebanon, TN, NSTA STEM Forum and Expo Steering Committee Science teachers will thank you for having this book in your collection! Readers will be lured by the catchy story titles and short mysteries that cover wide variety of science themes in Life Science, Earth and Space Science, Physical and Chemical Science, and General Science. The science content is woven into the story seamlessly, while keeping the stories to a page length. With the Common Core Standards requiring reading and writing across the subject areas, this book is perfect. The stories provide a wonderful opportunity to use content knowledge and critical thinking skills to construct a response. The captivating stories will encourage even the most reluctant reader. This is a great read for kids who love science as well as a valuable resource for teachers. -- Pamela K. Simmons, Library Media Specialist, Penn Ya, New York Library Media Connection, Recommended This is a fantastic book for quizzing students during the last 10 minutes of class or as a transition activity.
