Gr 4–6—This information-packed set examines the most significant developments in science and technology. While the criteria used to determine what makes these 12 discoveries the "biggest" in their respective fields isn't clear, the choices are nonetheless solid. Engrossing and revealing, the narratives mix straightforward reporting with fascinating anecdotes, such as how the word bug has come to mean a computer error or glitch, and eyebrow-raising facts that will have readers clamoring for more. Even the selection of these six broad technologies is a bit unexpected and intriguing and should pique student interest. Vibrant color photos and historical images provide strong text support and add visual interest, giving the books additional weight. VERDICT A satisfying and truly enjoyable series.
