Grades 3-6. Although young children may think that research projects hinge upon nothing more than a quick Google search, these titles in the Information Explorer Junior series show students some more professional ways to search for, edit, and present information. Choose It! is a great starting point for young researchers as it explains the research process, how to select a topic, narrow down broader topics, and consider open-ended questions. The clean layout with color photos and graphics, large print, and highlighted glossary words also includes activities that reinforce each topic. The books are terrific individually, but together, they create an even stronger resource that spans the research process.
