About the Books and the Selection Process
The books that appear in this annotated bibliography were selected as outstanding science trade books published in 2001. They are intended primarily for kindergarten through twelfth grade. They were selected by members of a book review panel appointed by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and assembled in cooperation with The Children’s Book Council (CBC). NSTA and CBC have cooperated on this bibliographic project since 1973.
The panel looks at both content and presentation. Selection is based generally on the following criteria:
• The book has substantial science content;
• Information is clear, accurate, and up to date;
• Theories and facts are clearly distinguished;
• Facts are not oversimplified to the point where the information is misleading;
• Generalizations are supported by facts and significant facts are not omitted; and
• Books are free of gender, ethnic, and socioeconomic bias.
The panel also uses rigorous selection guidelines relating to the presentation of material, including the following: logical presentation and a clear sequence of ideas; appropriate content level for the intended audience; compatible text and illustrations; illustrations that are accurate representations in size, color, and scale; appropriate trim size and format of the book for the subject and audience; and well organized layout that advances the text. The panel also gives attention to the quality of binding, paper, reproduction, and the appropriateness of typeface.
Each panel member reads all the books, but annotations reflect only the appraisal of the individual panelist whose initials follow at the end of each entry.
Publishers’ names appear in abbreviated form; complete names and addresses are available from The Children’s Book Council and in standard reference works. To obtain CBC’s Members List, send $2 and a self-addressed 6” x 9” envelope with 80¢ postage to CBC, Attn: Publications, 12 West 37th St., 2nd Fl, New York, NY 10018-7480; or the list may be downloaded from the CBC website.
Titles are arranged by subject category. Although some titles are appropriate for more than one category, the books have been placed where their usefulness in science education appears greatest. Panelists have also indicated the National Science Content Standards (see explanation below) to which the books relate. Where more than one standard is listed, the most applicable standard is given first.
