Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Matter exists in several forms. All around us gases mingle with one another in a life-shaping manner. Our existence depends upon the ability to find water, one of the most elemental liquid forms that matter can assume. Solid versions of matter surround us in the form of building materials, furniture, and all the impedimenta of daily life. Thus, matter, in its many shapes, sizes, and compositions truly is an amazingly adaptive part of the world around us. In this volume of the "Science Answers" series, Ballard addresses the way in which matter literally shapes our world. Using a question and answer format the author taps into some of the core principles of the material world. Readers will come away from this slim and illustrated volume with a solid base of information about topics such as the effect of temperature upon materials, chemical changes, solutions, and freezing points. Throughout the book useful illustrations underscore the author's main points. Additionally, one of the best features of this book, and the series it is a part of, is the inclusion of clear experimental outlines that readers can replicate. In Solids, Liquids, and Gases, Ballard has provided her readers with a roadmap for better understanding the material world they live in. As such, this is a fine book and one that younger readers with a scientific bent will enjoy. 2004, Heinemann Library, Ages 9 to 11.
