All About Books

What Landmarks do for history, All About Books do for science! These books were published by Random House in the 50's and 60's and at least several titles were reprinted by E. M. Hale.

There are 58 total titles in the series, covering a variety of topics like space and earth, the physical and natural sciences, physiology and medicine, great discoveries--and more random topics like music and political science. They vary in usefulness and literary quality. Most are excellent, although a few are not as good as the others.

Like the Landmark books, these are geared towards the 4th-6th grade range for students. We find some are suitable for kids as young as 3rd and others for students up to grade 8.
