I think this is a good book for students who are exceeding second grade reading currently. There is a lot of information and larger words, such as igneous, minerals, tectonic plates, etc. that I think would be difficult for emerging and early proficient readers to comprehend. I think this would be a good book for an exceeding student to use as an expert book reference or to read as part of their nonfiction collection. I like that the book went deeper into depth about each type of rock (igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary) after explaining a little bit about where rocks came from and what they are. I also liked all the examples they put in the book. The age range for this book is 6-9 and the reading level is an N. The DCI being explored in this book are earth and space sciences because it is describing rocks and where they came from and different parts of the earth that affect rocks, such as tectonic plates, and physical science because the book talks about the different types of rocks and how you can tell igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary apart from each other. The CCC being explored in this book is patterns because the book is looking at the the ways rocks are formed.… (més)

The book Jump Into Science: Sun is an engaging and playful book filled with fun facts and plenty of information about the sun. Throughout this book, we are led by two kids and a cat throughout space to learn more about the sun. The illustrations in this book are kid friendly while still remaining accurate. I think that this book would be a great read during a science unit on the solar system for children to learn more about the sun. Teachers can also incorporate projects and other science experience into their lesson about the sun based on the information and facts from the book. I like this book because it is an easy read, but it is also full of so much amazing information that kids will love and be fully engaged with.… (més)

The book Jump Into Science: Dirt is an engaging story that follows a mole in their garden that teaches the readers all about dirt or better known as soil to some. The pages of this book are full of kid friendly illustrations and full interesting information. Teachers could most definitely use this book in their classroom for many topics! Teachers could use this book to introduce a science unit on plants, insects (worms more specifically), and so on or even a unit on environmental science. I like this book because it is kid friendly, engaging, informative, and versatile which is highly valued in the classroom.… (més)
