“In a deceptively simple style, this little gem introduces the scientific process. . . On the recto, a large, clear, colorfully bordered photo shows a first-grade scientist engaged in that investigative step. . . Other students are shown noticing details, drawing what they see, taking notes, measuring, designing experiments, etc. The last two pages explain that a scientist keeps trying things over and over and, perhaps best of all, has fun. . . this title reads like a picture book while conveying a positive message. An accessible volume that will prove especially useful in the classroom..” —School Library Journal
