Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Magnets can be found in many places. They are used to lift cars in junkyards, run motors of refrigerators, fans and burglar alarms, and even to show us a direction in a compass. This book contains simple text and clear illustrations to describe how magnets work. The text includes experiments that children can try with magnets. Some experiments are as simple as testing various objects in the room to find out which are attracted by magnets. Others are presented at the back of the book and are more complicated, such as creating a compass or making your own magnet. Some activities are also included, such as using a compass magnet to go on a treasure hunt. This fascinating book will attract readers while teaching them the fundamental facts about magnets. 2003, Picture Window Books,
