To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Great scientific concepts and experiment methods. Very positive family, gender and race underlying messages. Girl of color into scientific (and magical) things. Both my 3 year old granddaughter and 10 year old grandson loved having this read to them. Each book has a glossary at the end reinforcing the meanings of new words and scientific terms. Hope there are more in the series eventually than the 7 books I have now.
We finally got around to reading this book a few weeks ago and I think my kids liked it as much as I did. What I liked best about it was how the author took us through the trial and error of Zoe's experiment in a fun way. My kids enjoyed the characters (especially Sassafras) and seeing a normal child as an effective problem solver. When we read Zoe and Sassafras they always ask to do experiments but after reading the latest book in the series they really wanted to garden and see things grow.
These books are great. My 6 year old son loves them. They provide positive lessons and are very entertaining. If your child is starting to tolerate longer books and you want to transition into chapter books, this is the place to start.
