Children's LiteratureExplaining the laws of physics to young children just got a little easier. To explain force and how it works in the world, the author uses, for example, a toy car to illustrate the push/pull of force. The same toy car explains weak force, while a full-sized car is an example of strong force. No explanation of force would be complete without including the role of friction and gravity as they affect force in the moving and stopping of things. The writing is concise and complete but never too technical for primary-grade readers. Using everyday objects as models and incorporating them into humorous illustrations, the material is covered in an engaging manner. The experiment on friction will give kids a hands-on approach and help to reinforce the concepts studied. Classroom teachers and science teachers will find this an excellent supplemental choice to support the curriculum. Part of the "Let's-Read-And-Find-Out" science series, this is a Stage 2 book. 2005, HarperCollins, Ages 7 to 9.
