Short, concise paragraphs teach young readers about thermometers and related concepts such as states of matter. Despite the series title, the book quickly makes it clear that thermometers aren’t just for scientists; they’re also tools of the trade for doctors, cooks, and weather forecasters. Suggestions for two experiments further underscore the thermometer’s wide range of applications, while photographs of children using thermometers also emphasize the series’ philosophy of hands-on learning. The book shows and labels different types of thermometers so students can learn to read them with confidence. Difficult or potentially unfamiliar words (“mercury,” “thermocouple”) are printed in bold and defined in the glossary. The back matter also includes a link to publisher-approved Web sites and an index.

Praise & Reviews

School Library Journal

Series Review
Along with offering outstandingly clear explanations of how common scientific instruments work, these introductions supply exciting suggestions for hands-on projects and experiments, from comparing the densities of difference kinds of foods in the kitchen to keeping a temperature log. Various scales of measurement and useful terms such as “meniscus” are carefully defined, and features such as instructions for preparing slides in Microscope and spreads defining the systematic techniques of the Scientific Method and the work of scientists add value to the set as a whole. Diagrams clarify and complement the text while the color photos of target-age children (sporting safety goggles where appropriate) enthusiastically enjoying science provide further incentive to observe physics, chemistry, and biology in action.
