Editorial Review

Science Behind the Colors - Reviewed by School Library Journal

Cover: Blue-Footed Boobies

Bright, clear photos fill the pages of this series, while text is divided into easily digestible chunks of three or four sentences. Many of the photos have labels or small “Did You Know?” text boxes that offer additional facts. Each title also includes an infographic, such as a diagram of blue-footed boobies’ mating dance or a map of where mandarinfish live. An activity at the end of each book directs readers to research life cycles or observe how food coloring changes a stalk of celery. Those who wish to learn more may use the “Fact Surfer” website to access more resources. VERDICT An engaging series useful for lessons on animal adaptations or pleasure reading for animal lovers in general.
