Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Full page, color photographs illustrate the characteristics of magnets. Brief information about natural magnets is set against the background of lodestones dug out from the earth. The magnetic field is shown with two bar magnets and iron filings. Another picture shows the different types of magnets and introduces the terms north and south poles. In the text, there is a description of the terms attract and repel. Learn about the different uses of magnets from magnetic sweepers, electric motors, and amplifiers. Readers may need support with the content-specific vocabulary and the different sentence structures in the text. Some readers may find assistance with an introduction to informational text features such as the labels, glossary, resources, and index. Additional resources include three book titles and the FactHound Internet site to web sites about magnets. No consultant was listed for this book which is a part of the "Science Starts" set which include texts about bubbles, gears and wheels, and seeds. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
