Children's Literature
Human beings are social creatures. As such, we take every opportunity to communicate with one another. Across the ages, mankind has developed many forms of communication, starting with many varieties of oral language. Then written forms of language emerged. As human creativity expanded, a host of new forms of communication were developed. In this little book we are briefly introduced to the history of human communication. Beginning with the earliest forms of language and reaching ahead to incredibly complicated technological developments, the author provides readers with an overview of communications. Each section of the book includes suggested activities that outline the concepts discussed. The illustrated text also includes a fascinating "hands on" project. The author has included the components for making a simple yet functional radio as well as detailed instructions as to its construction. Learners who thrive on a practical implementation of new information will enjoy tinkering with this project as well as the other activities described in the text. This kit, with its introductory information about communication and projects for children and their teachers or parents, represents a fine effort at making science a practical learning experience. Part of the "Inventor's Handbook" series. 2000, Silver Dolphin Books, $16.95. Ages 9 to 12. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
