Not sure how to explain arthroscopy to your curious kids? Do you want to let them learn (and maybe teach you) on their own? The Scholastic Science Dictionary is a fantastic reference tool for science- and nature-oriented kids in elementary and middle school. More than 2,400 terms from biology, astronomy, chemistry, physics, psychology, geology, and other fields are defined with pronunciation guides, cross-references, and clear full-color illustrations by Hannah Bonner. There might not be enough information included to write a report on a given subject, but the definitions are a great help to young researchers and can get the writing process flowing when other sources use unfamiliar words. When you need to know which way a stalagmite points, the Scholastic Science Dictionary is there for you. --Rob Lightner
