Gr 1–3—Addressing the many questions that curious kids ask, this series offers age-appropriate explanations without veering on the didactic. Each book begins with a fictional scene that drives the narrative, setting up a central question and allowing an "expert" (a park ranger, a character's parent), who is also part of the story, to share useful knowledge with both the information-seeker and the audience. Readers will easily relate to these possible real-world situations. Eye-catching color photos coupled with thought-provoking sidebars encourage kids to think critically, ask questions, and make educated guesses based on what they've learned.
VERDICT A smart and incredibly appealing series.
