To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Don't get distracted by the sheer number of reviews for this book. Better books exists. This book appears good on the outside. As a parent of two kids, I realised that the book actually fails to explains concepts well. I later started finding too many graphics distracting to quickly summarize the reading. When I bought "Help Your Kids with Science (DKYR): A Unique Step-by-Step Visual Guide", I realised that the quality of images, explanation and coverage and concept is far superior in DK book than this one. The DK book is cheaper as well. I would highly recommend to skip all books in this series by Workman (I have bought Math one as well), and instead buy the DK "Help your kid with..." series books. All of them are super good. Parents and kids both will find the DK "Help your kid with..." Geography, Science, Math and English simply of superb quality. Skip this Workman publishing book.
Very good book. It covers science from 5th std to 12th std. The narration is child-friendly and much better than traditional textbooks. It keeps the kid engaged with explanation and questions.Good examples for the basics.
I decided to home-school my daughter this yr. I was looking up science info constantly and printing this and that...it was just a mess. I thought I would give this book a try and boy! am I happy I did!! This book has everything from infos, charts, questions and answers, table of elements, physics, science, biology etc... the notes are clear that even I enjoy reading it and looking up information. It is so well done that we just ordered the Math one. We will keep these books forever as references. Here are some pictures.
After getting the first Math one I was convinced to get all of them working my way to the whole collection... Perfect to review each UNIT OF ANY SCHOOL CALENDAR...Fun to read clear and complete...As a student of middle school and Mom homeschooler, it was a real gift I even use it to inspire PPt for each unit to complete the lesson and just add practice at the end to consolidate... Knowing they will be making more subjects and hopefully grade 9-10-11 as well... First time to follow a book series on Amazon I just don't want to miss any of them as they will be published...After going through sooo many ppt and pdf of the school curriculum this was simplified work done for me ..
Timely arrival. Excellent quality product. Serves the purpose of catching up 10-12 year old kids with what has been covered so far at school. Helps as a refresher for adults too. Totally worth the price.
This book is very helpful for my son. It is easy to read and understanding. The book holds most of the knowledge that My son learn in grade 8 science and it also is clear and well organized . The book has a smooth texture that is nice and smooth witch is very clean. The book itself is like a year lessons itself cause it has questions about the topic of the thing that your learning .
