Children's LiteratureDid you know that atoms fit together and create building blocks called molecules or that you can change the shape of a solid? Fun facts like these abound in this incredible science series called "Amazing Science." It shows how we see, touch, taste, and smell matter every day. It also demonstrates that matter takes on many forms, such as ice or water. It can be found in the dead of winter or beginning of spring. The table of contents at the beginning of the book shows where to find out about the different aspects of matter. Dramatic illustrations and simple text take young readers to fascinating places to show that matter surrounds us every day. The glossary at the end makes it easy to incorporate science vocabulary with spelling or word building. "Matters of Fact" gives a wonderful summary of what makes matter so important to our everyday lives. Darlene Stille even adds a simple science experiment at the end to give readers a chance to be a real scientist and explore what matter is. 2004, Picture Window Books, Ages 4 to 8.
