Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joella Peterson
Parker introduces young readers to science and technology in this title from the "What About�" series. Starting with "the basics of matter," readers are introduced to atoms and the unseen world of science that is the foundation for many scientific breakthroughs. Next comes: "chemicals and compounds," "structures and materials," "energy and work," "electricity and power," "magnetism," "the electronic age," "rays and radiation," "light and lasers," "sound," "force, motion, and machines," "time and space," "transport and communications," and "technology today and tomorrow." The information is presented in a question and answer form—meaning that questions such as "How do CDs and DVDs store information?" are asked and then a short paragraph explains the answers. This format is perfect for readers who just want to explore bits and pieces of each subject, rather than reading the whole book straight through. This also means that there is a lot of information that will introduce readers to various bits of science and technology, but it does not ever get too detailed. If readers find something in this introductory text that they are extremely interested in, they will then need to go to a more in-depth source on that particular subject. There is also a detailed quiz and index included. Reviewer: Joella Peterson
