Totally Silly Science - School Library Journal

Take a deep dive into unbelievable science, from brain freezes to how space toilets work, in this winning new series. Each title takes a topic, such as animals or space, and presents a series of fun facts woven together with the real science behind them. The books live up to their “silly” titles, with googly eyes on the covers and a fun mixture of photos and cartoons in the pages. The high-interest visuals are combined with accessible text, written between a second and third grade reading level, and there are typically no more than four sentences per page. Additional web resources on each topic can be found through the Factsurfer website, which is shared via a QR code on the back of the book.

VERDICT High on kid appeal, this series effectively combines absurd facts with real science; a strong addition to upper-elementary hi-lo collections.
