Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Have you ever wondered what sound is? How does sound move through air and water? What causes some sounds to have a higher or lower pitch? These and other questions are addressed in Sound. In this concise illustrated book, readers will be introduced to some of the key qualities of a factor that surrounds us on a daily basis. Sound is part of a broader series entitled "Science Answers." This series is aimed at offering explanations of the physical science that is part and parcel of the world we live in. In this particular volume of that elementary level science series readers are provided some brief but helpful information concerning basic tenets involved in sound. Further, a set of simple experiments are outlined that will clarify some of the principles presented in the book. These simple experiments are well developed and could well provide fun and information to children. In the end, this is a straightforward book and one that will help youngsters better understand the ins and outs of sound, its production, and how it works. 2004, Heinemann Library, Ages 9 to 11.
