Ever wonder how a crime case is solved?  This reference book will teach you different ways to crack cases and find the right criminal.  Three crimes happened in Anytown one day and by the end of this book you will have learned how to provide possible solutions on how police would solve the crimes.  Did you know that you can build a replica of a personís face from just their skull or that trees actually can talk?  You will find out how all this and more is possible by reading Crime Scene: How Investigators Use Science to Track Down the Bad Guys.

I enjoyed learning about the forensic science taught in this reference book.  Crime Scene is a good starting book about forensics but it could have had more detail on how everything was solved.  My dad is a trained forensic odontologist and this is a subject I am really interested in. This colourful book combines interesting facts in a childrenís reference book and produces a wonderful introduction to the fascinating world of forensic science.  The cartoon pictures add a fun and creative side to this educational book.  I recommend this book to children with a keen interest in forensics.

I rate Crime Scene: How Investigators Use Science to Track Down the Bad Guys five stars.
