Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
A scientific romp through amusement parks, playgrounds, and ball fields may be just the ticket for keeping young minds alert and questioning this summer. All the ingredients are here in Roller Coaster Science, a fun-filled, physics-oriented book playfully conceived and written by an elementary school teacher.
