Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Using clear, everyday examples of wheels and axles, the author succinctly defines and explains the physics involved. A simple graphic design shows the components of a wheel and axle. Readers can then see how they can provide more speed and force. The final page provides an example of this simple machine as part of a roller, a complex machine. An experiment using common and inexpensive items--in this case, a rolling pin--provides the student with a hands-on way to understand the concept. Words to know, Internet sites, a brief bibliography and an index are included. This is one of six books in the high quality "Understanding Simple Machines" series, which is part of "The Bridgestone Science Library." 2001, Bridgestone Books/Capstone Press,
