Review of First Edition"Talk about Power! If you can only buy one book this year, consider Phyllis Perry's A Teacher's Science Companion. Perry provides an extensive bibliography of science books in print for grades K through 6. Our copy is already dog-eared with many margin notes. Couple this book with your public library card and an interlibrary loan system and you have unlocked a world of knowledge for you and your students." (Book Picks)
