Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Leis-Newman
A basic look at the concept of matter is posed in this look at the science around us. Young readers will learn that everything that has mass and a shape is matter. Matter can be a liquid, solid or gas, such as a chair, cookie, water or air. Since energy does not have mass or shape, it is not matter. The comprehension and extension section for students asks them to summarize, talk about the matter that creates cookies, and to give examples of matter. In "Show What You Know" students will be asked to think of a liquid other than milk or water, demonstrate why a balloon can show gas taking up space and what is not matter. The glossary words are: energy, gas, liquid, mass, matter and solid. The large text, color pictures and easy-to-understand concept make this an appropriate, budget-conscious choice for the elementary classroom or library. The text reflects National Science Education and Teaching Standards. It would be best for a first or second grader, and teachers can follow up with Melting Matter or other books in the "My Science Library" series from Rourke Classroom. Reviewer: Elizabeth Leis-Newman
