Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amy S. Hansen
This book is full of really bad puns and equally good explanations of electricity. Part of the "Super Silly Science Jokes" series, Stewart opens with the question: "How do you catch an electric eel? A: With a lightning rod." Yep. It's a groaner. The idea of combining these silly jokes with real, basic science is a brilliant one, and Stewart pulls it off with panache. On the left-hand page, Stewart addresses the basics of electricity, describing atoms, shocks you might get while scuffing across the carpet, static electricity, magnetics, motors, and more. On the right hand page there are silly jokes and bright pictures or illustrations. But even on the left hand pages, the serious discussion is written in a relaxed, conversational manner. Stewart concludes with the expected back matter offering more sources for kids who want to learn about electricity. But she also offers a quick tutorial for kids who want to write jokes. This was one of my favorite parts of the book. She takes apart some of her jokes and explains why they are funny, for example, they might have a word that sounds similar but has different meanings. Then she challenges her readers to write a similar joke. Writing jokes is above and beyond the expectations of most books on electricity, but it is not completely off topic. Any kid who can make up jokes probably has a good understanding of the science as well. Reviewer: Amy S. Hansen
