How we used this book and what we thought:
When my boys finished their schoolwork for the day, I would sit down and read a few of these stories to them. I would let them tell me what they thought the answer to the story would be. My oldest son, age 11, loves science and could usually guess the solution. My younger son, age 9, had to really think about some of the answers and did get a few wrong. Overall, my boys loved this book. They loved that the stories were short and that they had to figure out the solution. When I finished reading them the stories, they went back through and re-read some of them again. They give this book 5 stars! I really enjoyed reading this book to my boys to find out how much they really knew about science. It also helped strengthen their listening skills. They had to pay attention so they could get the answer. I also give this book 5 stars!
