Modern, bright photography and age-appropriate text engage young learners in an exploration of everyday materials in this new series. Using simple, colorful, familiar objects to demonstrate the characteristics of such textiles as silk, cotton, wool, and nylon, each installment encourages readers to ask and answer questions and to plan and conduct simple investigations. Based on National Science Education Standards, this series is an ideal supplement for preschool and kindergarten teachers and offers parents a unique opportunity to prepare youngsters for formal education.

Using a question-and-answer approach and a variety of interactive prompts—such as words to know and important facts—students will learn the various properties that make silk a unique member of the textile family.
