Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - James Rutkowski
A colorful book for the curious beginning engineer or scientist and early reader, it is filled with examples of simple machines that use a wheel and axle for movement and work. Each page contains a picture of a familiar object that uses this simple machine and a short and precise description of how it makes work easier, faster, or applies more force. The examples include a screwdriver, skateboard, doorknob, bicycle gears, and a Ferris wheel. The explanations include such scientific terms as effort, force, friction, work, and torque and provide the young reader with a description that is in an easy to understand language and pictures that provide the visual clues that change words into applied knowledge. This volume is part of a series about "simple machines." Other books in this series examine levers, pulleys, ramps, screws, and wedges, giving one the complete set of simple machines that are involved in every one of our most complex machines. Included are small fun facts about these machines, a glossary, and a page where the reader can learn more about the topic. For the young mind that is curious about how things work, this is an ideal book to start them on the path of understanding. Reviewer: James Rutkowski

    K picked this book up from his school library.

    We thought this book was pretty cook on explaining and giving examples of wheels and axles.
    We learned that there are wheels and axles on a facet, never thought it would be considered that before.
    We learn a bit about effort, force, friction and torque. And it is all easily worded for the kids to understand.
     The pictures are done to where you understand what is being told to you about how wheels and axles work with different things.
