Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Have you ever wondered why you can lift a car weighing more than a ton off the ground by simply manipulating a jack handle? Do you really understand why a massive oil tanker can ride across the surface of the ocean without sinking? Is it clear to you what gravity really is? If the answers to these questions do not flow off your tongue with speed and surety then Forces and Motion is a book you might want to review. Written as one chapter in the multi-volume "Science Answers" series this particular text addresses the laws of motion. Through a format that typifies this illustrated series, Cooper frames a series of questions related to the physical science of motion. Each answer includes a discussion of the basic principles involved as well as concrete examples. Additionally, a series of experiments are detailed that help to provide real life applications of the essential scientific principles in question. Throughout this little book, Cooper writes with a deft and descriptive hand. Readers will finish this book and come away with a deeper understanding of how the forces of nature assist or bar motion and activity. This is a well thought out volume and one that will engage the interest of young scientists. 2004, Heinemann Library, Ages 9 to 11.
