Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A trio of titles kicks off David Glover's Experiments in Science series, which features one experiment per spread, with crisp photographs and plenty of white space. In How Does It Work?, for instance, school-age scientists experiment with "Electricity," "Forces and Movement," "Light and Color" and "Sound and Music." A "Parents' Notes" section at the beginning of each chapter helps adults approach the scientific principles and a quiz at the end tests children's knowledge. The other two titles are How Do Things Grow? and What Is It Made Of? ( Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature
Come along with Chip, Pixel, and Newton as they teach, using fun, hands-on experiments about electricity, forces and movement, light and color, and sound and music. At the end of every section comes a surprise quiz. Along with the experiments, author Glover includes a lot of additional scientific information. This great rainy-day book for young readers has interesting things to try while teaching at the same time. The author has succeeded in putting together a fun and educational book. The illustrations, mostly realistic photographs, assist readers with the experiments. To help children benefit most from each experiment, Glover also includes a section for parents. Overall, this is an interesting collection of experiments for aspiring young scientists. The book is part of the "Experiments in Science" series. 2001, Dorling Kindersley, Ages 5 to 7.
