Children's LiteratureYoung readers will learn a new appreciation for sound after reading this title, which covers several diverse aspects. They will learn about some sounds that they are already familiar with, such as laughter and singing, but they will also find out that even underwater creatures make sounds to communicate. The ability of sound to travel is another fact that is brought to light, and is explained in a simple manner. This book has examples that young readers can easily relate to and try for themselves, such as strumming a guitar string, which shows how sounds and vibrations are interrelated. Up-to-date color photos also show demonstrations of children making their own sounds by blowing a whistle or hitting a cooking pot with a spoon. This title is part of the "Rookie Read-About Science" series and includes an index and a "words you know" section, accompanied by photographs from the pages the words are used on. 2004 (orig. 1963), Scholastic Inc, Ages 4 to 7.
