Science Naturally sent us One Minute Mysteries: 65 More Short Mysteries You Solve With Science! to review for them, and we were happy to read it.
We decided to read this book aloud as a group. I really liked how the book was broken up into different sections; Life Science, Earth and Space Science, Physical and Chemical Science, General Science, there is a bonus section and then a excerpt of One Minute Mysteries: 65 Mysteries You Solve With Math! Guess who will be buying the Math book??!?!
Each story is really short, and I love that the front page tells the mystery and the answer is on the back of the page. So I would read the short excerpt and then ask the girls to solve the mystery. After we had discussed what we though the answer was I would turn the page and finish the story. It was really cool to “see” how much the girls had retained from previous lessons in science. There were quiet a few mysteries that sparked their interest and so off we would go to find answers to questions that had stemmed from these short mysteries. The one change the girls would have liked was if the stories were a little longer and if the pictures were in color. Besides that they LOVED it and can’t wait to start the Math version.
Eric & Natalie Yoder, this father-daughter team has got a winner here. This book is a great read for all ages, Leann age 7 enjoyed listening to the stories and figuring out the answers. We would recommend this book!!
