Scribner Science Reference Series

This series was specially written and designed for students to support science, history and social studies research in Grades 7-10. Each volume contains about 90 profiles of scientists throughout history and from all parts of the world. Sidebar stories, timelines, illustrations, and marginal definitions illuminate the text and each volume concludes with a comprehensive index. This continuing series will introduce two volumes each year covering scientists, events and issues.


"Many appealing features are found in both volumes,..All information is clearly and concisely written...the interesting, little-known facts and accomplishments that make these a fascinating read...this series offer a unique perspective...recommended purchases for junior- and senior-high-school collections, where they will be valuable research tools, especially for reports public libraries should seriously consider them as well." -- Booklist (March 2002)
