Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-2 More visually appealing than the 1962 edition, this revision includes discussions of the weight of air and of the fact that spaceships have to take air with them as they fly above the air. The major deletion is that air is not found in packed tin cans. Both editions describe the properties of air and offer two simple experiments to prove that air takes up space and that air is dissolved in water. Illustrations in both bold and pastel colors are coordinated with the easy-to-read text and make this an eye-pleasing and informative book. Alice Arnett , Greenwood Elementary School, Louisville, Ky.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-This newly illustrated edition of a 1986 title introduces the concept of air, its presence in our world, and its importance to the environment. The text describes several interesting facts, clearly explaining ideas and incorporating experiments that are easy to reproduce at home or in the classroom. The appealing artwork supports the narrative and takes readers on a journey through the natural world. Produced in pen and warm, earthy watercolors, the pictures are filled with amusing details. Additional, easy-to-replicate activities are appended. This book serves as a wonderful starting point for educators beginning a unit on an integral part of our ecosystem and would be an asset to any science collection.-Hope Marie Cook, Eastern Connecticut State University, Willimantic Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
