Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
What is the loudest sound that you can think of? What is the softest? Why are some sounds high and others low? This book in the "Amazing Science" series will teach children in simple text and vivid illustrations all about sound. Children will enjoy reading books in this series because each one is full of ideas for testing and proving the information that is given. For example, Sound teaches that sound is made from vibrating things. Children can then experiment by holding their hands on the middle of their throat and humming to feel the vocal chords fluttering. Included are fast facts, a glossary, an index, a table of contents, and a list of Internet resources and books available to learn more about sound. Also described are interesting facts such as why our voices sound different when we talk than when we listen to ourselves on a tape recording, or why we have two ears, or what an eardrum is. Elementary science teachers and parents will enjoy this series about science. 2003, Picture Window Books,
