Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book is evidence that Vicki Cobb's books are not just for homework-laden middle-school students scrambling for a Science Fair project. Here is a title for even preschoolers curious about why they fall down, or why anything falls that does not overwhelm with verbose scientific jargon. Besides being an informative work on gravity, it also presents easy experiments for hands-on activities. An item list is included on a preface page, but everyone is encouraged to augment those supplies with creative variations and items found at home. Simple, uncomplicated illustrations on mostly white backgrounds add to the ease of describing this subject—a feature everyone will appreciate. The "star" of this book, a young freckle-faced lad, appears to have fallen down more than his fair share of times, due to the amount of band-aids he sports! The final page will hopefully send a message to out elementary school children that it is okay to step on a scale and be happy with whatever number appears. Both boys and girls will find this book attractive, as the illustrations are fresh, bright and modern. 2004, HarperCollins, Ages 3 to 5.
