Children's LiteratureThis is another entry in the "Early Bird Energy" series. In six chapters, the basic science of heat is explained using experiments, diagrams and clear, colorful photographs. The inclusion of a glossary, an index and a bibliography makes the book more useful. Children and adults will use this book together as it is not intended to be a book for children to read by themselves. A page of guidelines for adults gives information to assist them in how to best use the material included in the book. The colorful cover is attractive and sure to draw attention but the price may very well preclude purchase except for schools or libraries. 2006, Lerner Publications, Ages 8 to 10.
