Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1–This series, compact in form and narrow in focus, introduces the basics of sound through vibrant photographs, large text, and simple sentences. Each title begins with the statements that “There are many different sounds. We hear different sounds around us every day.” From there the books introduce new concepts, building upon one another from What Is Sound?, the most basic book, to How Do We Hear?, Making Sounds, and Different Sounds. What Is Sound? covers sound waves, while How Do We Hear? explains the workings of the ear. Making Sounds describes the different sounds humans can make. Finally, from Different Sounds, readers will learn that fast sound waves make high sounds and slow sound waves make low sounds. These are great introductions and worthy additions to the I Can Read science category.
