Editorial Reviews

Carolyn Phelan
The subtitle is more to the point than the title here: mobiles are introduced after many other, simpler activities involving balance. As in Zubrowski's earlier "science fun" books on balloons, wheels, mirrors, and the like, playing around with simple equipment becomes the key to understanding scientific principles. Here a series of demonstrations using the human body and simple balancing toys challenges kids to think about weights and balance points as they try the easy-to-do activities suggested. Doty's lighthearted line drawings clarify the text and add to the fun. An appealing book on a somewhat unusual topic.
