For young scientists: Geo Detectives-Water Cycle (Oxlade and Ganeri)

This was my second exploration with the intrepid George and Ava.  I previously read and reviewed another in the series  George and Ava are good company.  They are curious and eager to learn.  In this one, young scientists will learn a lot about the different forms of water, (solid, liquid, gas), as they perform experiments and learn geo facts.  There is a quiz at the end so kids can see what they retained and also suggestions for additional resources for teachers.  This series provides a wonderful way to learn science.  Science becomes fun and curiosity is rewarded.  Perfect!

Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto for this book in exchange for an honest review.

One delightful thing about reading and reviewing children’s titles is the opportunity that is presented to learn like a child again. I never studied volcanoes and earthquakes when I was in school; I remember magma from my kids’ studies and that was about it. In this appealingly illustrated title, I learned about geology with Ava and George. They were excellent guides.

This book provides lots of information and terminology in small easy to learn pieces. There are many GeoFacts and experiments to try at home as children learn about volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis. At the end of the book, there are a useful review section, an author’s note and a list of websites for young scientists who want to learn more.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for providing this book in exchange for an honest review. You and your young scientist will love it.
