Dinwiddie, Robert (editor) POPULAR SCIENCE: Science Year by Year. ISBN 0-439-28438-4. New York: Scholastic, 2001. 240 pp. $19.95. What better book to captivate the attention of young and old than this richly informative, pictorial journey through the 20th century. The scientific contributions and inventions from the past century are presented year by year. Each exceptional picture is accompanied by 75-100 words of well-written explanation. Special focus topics are portrayed through time lines. This compendium of knowledge is well-worth owning, because readers will page through and enjoy reading it time after time. Ages 9-14.
