Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Though this is a book mostly about butts, it is far from being bawdy. Lola Schaefer, and her co-author Heather Lynn Miller, have chosen a topic of interest to every young kid, and used it to impart some very intriguing scientific facts that few people know. On top of that, combining the crazy format of an alphabet book with some rather silly cartoon-like illustrations and filling them out with sentences that plainly explain actual functions and reasons could be called pure genius.

This is not Schaefer's first book of intriguing science facts for kids, though it may be the silliest. She has written many, including Arrowhawk, which was selected as a 2005 Outstanding Science Trade Book for Students K-12.
