Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
When kids discover the Earth is round they may wonder how they keep from falling off. The answer to this question, and others pertaining to gravity, are answered in this book from the "First Graphics" series. The book is attractive with its graphic "frames" and simple text. Material is presented in three chapters. Child characters in the book ask interesting questions throughout the book and readers will keep turning pages to discover the answers. Readers can relate to—examples of how gravity works when someone tosses a ball in the air and how it feels when someone rides on a carnival ride. The sections about gravity and the moon and how astronauts feel gravity in space is especially well done. The book contains a large amount of information even though the text is presented in short simple sentences. The illustrations are playful and add to ease of comprehension. Material following the text consists of a simple glossary, index, and book and Internet resources to use for extra information. The books in the series make excellent supplements to science lessons. Reluctant and emerging readers will find them attractive. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
