Released September 2009

Reviewed by Bob Walch

Oscar is one very curious kitten and he is filled with questions about all the things he sees outside in the garden. Luckily, Snail has the answers to Oscar's questions.

Whether it is what birds construct their nests from, why a feather floats on water and a rock sinks, or how glass for a greenhouse is made, Snail is able to handle each and every one of the curious kitty's queries.

Part of the Start with Science series of books, "Oscar and the Snail" has a reinforced binding that will stand up to the heavy wear youngsters four and older will give it. Preschoolers will discover why we select specific materials to do different jobs, where materials come from and what useful qualities they have.

This is an excellent series that introduces children to core science concepts through engaging stories, fresh illustrations and supplemental activities. More than just a read aloud book, the author also challenges the
child (and his or her parents) to find some special materials on their next outdoor outing.
