Children's Literature - Children's Literature
For the young reader who is enraptured by mathematics and science, this book is definitely noteworthy. Jam-packed full of explanations, experiments, definitions, and extension ideas, something is sure to grab the reader's attention. Lists of mostly common required materials, such as shoeboxes, thread, and food coloring, are provided along with subject-related materials, such as a compass, protractor, and a battery. Each project is broken down into easy to follow steps with accompanying photographs. Mapping out a land site? You could create a Theodolite to calculate the height of an object. How about trying some floating and sinking experiments by building a Hydrometer? You could even make a pendulum out of clay and straws. Teachers may find this book useful when preparing for math or science fairs. Parents can use it for rainy day projects. 2000, Aladdin Books, Ages 8 to 12, $21.90. Reviewer: Lori M. Saporosa
