Fun introduction to Science while reading Comics 18 May 2013
By Lisa A Adams - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have several of the Basher Books and my sons love them. I starting buying them when I had a 6th and 3rd grader at home. Now that my sons are older, 11 and 14 they do spend less time with them but only because they have practically memorized the contents of each book. The Basher series gives a striped down, easy to understand, colorful and fun introduction to a variety of topics. My oldest son memorized the Biology, Extreme Biology and Chemistry books when he took Biology and Chemistry as a Freshman. He also used the Basher Chemistry flash cards to learn the elements in the periodic table. His high school classmates were green with envy and asked him at least once a week where they could buy them. Your kids will reach for these books like they reach for other comics, but they will be learning and building a strong foundation of knowledge in each subject. My biggest praise for Basher is that my younger son, who had very little interest in science, became obsessed with reading each new Basher book, memorizing its contents and than testing the rest of the family on their knowledge. He consistently knew more than the rest of us...I'm a biological scientist and my husband is a physician and he gave us a few zingers too. They are a really great, fun way to learn the foundations of any subject. I hope Basher will continue to add to their library. They are surprisingly in depth and are thus, great fun for adults. I highly recommend the entire Basher series, as our entire household has used and enjoyed them.

They have a lot of information packed in a small size. Enough to keep children informed and interested. Well written and bright colors to keep the eyes on the pages.

Great for Emergent Readers - 2nd and 3rd Grades 16 Mar. 2014

Our second grader loves the Basher Series and the removable foldout that is in the back of each book. She takes them to her class where other children want to read her books, too! This makes her very motivated and proud.

The facts are are expressed in a manor that is meaningful and even funny to kids, with captivating cartoon images. It all seems to capture their interest which promotes understanding of the subject matter.
