PreS-K—Young readers are introduced to three science content areas—life, physical, and Earth and space—that support Next Generation Science Standards in these beginner volumes. Easy-to-read text clearly explains basic concepts, while colorful photos of familiar objects enable students to better grasp the ideas. Interactive elements, such as "Your Turn!" and "Let's Do Science!," invite students to apply what they've learned through hands-on activities, specifically through charting, drawing, and writing. Sensitive readers may be disturbed by a few upsetting images of animals in distress in Too Much Trash, but overall, the book effectively draws attention to the serious nature of pollution. Conspicuously, Sort It! stands out—and not in a necessarily good way—as the sole volume that contains cartoon illustrations in addition to photos.
