Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - RevaBeth Russell
This is an excellent beginning science book and it starts by informing the reader that the word “gas” used in cars is gasoline and is not the gas about which they will be reading. Gas is matter that has properties such as taking up space, such as when you blow up a balloon. Gas is made of particles that are too tiny to see, but they have mass and weight. Matter can change states. Adding or taking away heat is a way to change its state. Instructing the reader to find “vapor” in the word “evaporation,” is an example of a reading skill this book uses. Water vapor is a gas that when cooled condenses, or gets closer together, to form water. This physical change can be seen as clouds. A great experiment is described to discover that an empty glass is still full of air. “What do you think?” are mini activities and questions throughout the book helping the student become engaged in their reading. Part of the “Matter -Close Up” series. Reviewer: RevaBeth Russell; Ages 6 to 9.
