Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Julia Beiker
Young engineers can now learn about such as impact force, air resistance, and thrust using simple text and sentence structure to explain these hard concepts and put them in layman's terms. Detailed diagrams and flamboyant photographs featuring children in action add another layer of explanation. The front of the book explains the more technical parts of how toys fly while the back of the book uses household items to create experiments to prove or disapprove theories including whether a small or large parachute will hit the ground first. A table on page 30 summarizes the different types of force discussed in this book and gives examples of each move. I did find the illustration on page 7 strange since it featured an adult in the picture whereas the rest of the book shows children. The back of the book also includes a glossary defining words found in boldface throughout the book and the index. This book is part of the "Toys and Forces" series. Reviewer: Julia Beiker
