Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This "Simply Science" title gives an overview of electricity and how it works. How electricity was discovered, how batteries are made and how an electric charge is made are some of the topics explored. Children will be fascinated to learn about the electricity in their bodies, and they can easily perform the simple experiments. A brief biography of Benjamin Franklin is included. The large print contains bolded words and terms that are explained further in the glossary. Full-color photographs enhance the text by helping to illustrate the concepts presented. The smaller size and reinforced binding makes this a good resource for a school library or classroom. 2001, Compass Point Books, $21.26. Ages 7 to 12. Reviewer: Cheryl Peterson
