reviews:

"The instructive text is educational and entertaining, and young readers will thrill in seeing the diverse group of kids take the reins of scientific discovery...Playful illustrations capture the cool, endless depths of the ocean...and discussion of the scientific method and ways to pursue an interest in marine biology round out the back matter. A charming introduction to marine biology and scientific inquiry from the Kid Scientists series (2 titles).”         —Booklist

 

“What do marine biologists do? Fliess focuses on fieldwork...Maggie, a Black marine biologist, and her racially diverse team dive into the ocean to swim with humpback whales. They each have a different task... straightforward text offers...the importance of a hypothesis, part of the scientific method...There’s also a quick review of how Maggie and her group’s actions correspond to the scientific method. A highly simplified but inviting overview of marine biology.” —Kirkus Reviews

“The Kid Scientist series uses fictional stories to introduce how scientists employ the scientific method in their fields. While the scientists are actually racially diverse children, depicted in cheery, colorful scenes, their settings and work are realistic. Astronauts on the Space Station depicts both lab scenes with aeroponic plants and engaging descriptions of life on the ISS. In Insect Experts in the Rain Forest, Simone and her team of entomologists land in Costa Rica to investigate army ants that appear to have two abdomens. Extensive back matter includes an explanation of how to become a scientist like the one featured as well as the scientific method and how characters incorporated it in the story…entertaining ways of showing these practices in action.” —Booklist
