Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathy Leggett
It takes a force to flatten dough. It takes friction to stop your bike. The pull of a magnet holds a picture to your refrigerator. The pull of a wagon causes it to roll. The force of a ping pong ball can be stopped by a small paddle held in your hand, yet the force of an oncoming train requires a larger force. From the brightly colored table of contents to the glossary page after page is filled with brightly color photographs of young children experimenting with forces in ways that all children can relate to. Each seems to flow from the other as force is explained in easy to understand sentences. The photographs highlight the text in such a way that the readers will become caught up in learning, guessing the solutions before the text is even read. The large font adds to the books appeal and will entice early readers to pick this book up over and over again. IT is an excellent example of a great story for building success with not only learning to read but reading to learn. A hands-on activity invites the reader to interact with the text and conduct an experiment to determine which type of ball needs the most force to move. Fun! A thorough list of additional resources is included for the young scientist who wants to learn more or for teachers who are building units of research materials. A perfect addition to a classroom or personal library. Reviewer: Kathy Leggett
