Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
This interesting informative book about magnets engages readers immediately with a fishing expedition-a magnet on a string into a box of various objects. We learn how to turn a needle into a magnet and then how to turn that magnet into a compass. The compass is then used to prove that the earth is a magnet. Lets-Read-And-Find-Out Science, Stage 2.
