Jack Myers, Ph.D., (1913-2006) was the senior science editor of Highlights for Children, the nation's largest-circulation magazine for young readers. He was recruited for the job in the late 1950s by his parents, Highlights Founders Dr. Gary Cleveland Myers and Caroline Clark Myers. For more than forty years, he delighted curious kids with his answers to their science questions and with his many articles about true science discoveries. In addition to his role at Highlights, Jack Myers was a scientist at the University of Texas at Austin, where at the time of his death, he was professor emeritus of zoology. He was a member of the National Academy of Sciences.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-6-- A collection of questions sent to Highlights for Children over an unspecified period, answered by science editor Myers. The questions are not unusual, and are competently answered. While there is some vague relationship between one entry and the next, there's no chapter organization or other guide to help readers see the logic employed. The illustrations are of average quality, and in a variety of styles from cartoon to airbrush. The names and hometowns of the children who wrote in are included, a feature that may add authenticity but is mostly superfluous and distracting. The final page has a topical index with entries such as: ``Airplanes, Pages 50, 54.'' Some children love books like this, which help them gain an understanding of small facts from larger contexts; libraries with high demand for such titles will want this one. --Dorcas Hand, Annunciation Orthodox School, Houston
