Book Review of The Inquire and Investigate Series
The Children’s Book Review

What to Expect: Geology, Meteorology, Climatology, Interactive Projects, Online Media.

Where does wind come from? Why do volcanos erupt? What are rocks made of? These questions and more are answered in the Inquire and Investigate series from Nomad Books. Rocks and Minerals, The Science of Natural Disasters, and The Science of Weather and Climate introduce readers to the wonders of geology, meteorology, climatology, and mineralogy. The series provides detailed scientific explanations, hands-on experiments and projects, historical case studies, and even etymological facts.

The strongest feature of this series is the wide variety of activities and resources included supporting active, independent inquiry in place of passive reading. Set up with a format reminiscent of a school textbook, each volume includes links to online and digital resources for further research, an extensive glossary, reading, video, and museum lists, and hands-on projects allowing readers to test and develop their understanding.

More engaging than a typical school textbook but with a multimedia format that makes them perfect for independent and home learning, the Inquire and Investigate books are fantastic just as fun reads, but would also make excellent homeschooling textbooks to support a science curriculum.
