Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tina Chan
Heat energy makes things feel hot and the energy moves from one object to another. While not completely obvious, the thermodynamics—or study of the transfer of heat—is important to our way of life. Heat makes the temperature warmer. Heat comes from different places and things, including the sun, inside Earth, fuels and friction, and electricity. Thermometers measure temperature, which can be used when someone is feeling sick and to measure the temperature indoors and outdoors. Thermometers come in the form of a dial, digital, or liquid in a tube. Although heat energy is not visible, the work it does is. Heat is helpful to get around, for making things, cooking, and baking. Heat also changes temperatures. It can change the size of a material, change how things look, and it causes melting. Large, vivid color illustrations and photographs are shown to correspond with the text. The images enhance the story and they are appropriate for the age group. A glossary is included to introduce words that may be unfamiliar to readers. Also included are a fun home experiment, further resources list, and index. Reviewer: Tina Chan
