About this title


Highly accessible writing combines with a magazine-style format in this series focusing on cutting-edge science. Each subject illustrates how scientists solve problems and develop new technology while firmly connecting each title to core curricular subjects. The books are aimed at children aged nine to 14.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4–6—This solid and readable introduction to the field of bionics is divided into four chapters: "Replacing Parts," "Fixing Malfunctions," "Assisting the Senses," and "Facing the Future." Jango-Cohen uses a number of personal stories and references to pop culture to engage readers. She profiles Lyn Kolsteren, who received a bone-anchored hearing aid (BAHA). In the first chapter, she highlights Darth Vader and Dr. Octopus from the film Spider-Man 2 as examples of replacing parts. The explanations are clearly written and easily understood. Colorful photographs and illustrations are featured throughout the text and captions appear in colorful bubbles. This is a useful research tool on a topic that is certain to intrigue students.—Maren Ostergard, King County Library System, Issaquah, WA
