What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“With a light touch and kid-friendly questions, Andi Diehn leads the reader to a more nuanced understanding of their world and the science behind it, from being ‘forced to clean your room,’ to the force gravity exerts when you jump from a tree (‘Don’t jump out of trees!’ Ms. Diehn warns).”

—D.B. Johnson, author of Magritte’s Marvelous Hat and Henry Hikes to Fitchburg

Kids will enjoy learning all about different types of waves from the waves in a puddle to the waves in a radio! The “Try This!” activities will be fun for young readers to experiment with. The book began with a wave hello and ended with a wave goodbye, that was a very nice touch.

Waves: Physical Science for Kids is a non-fiction book introducing young readers to the concept of waves. I enjoyed how it takes a physics concept and makes it easy-to-understand by providing real world examples that kids will get. It has friendly and engaging text, fun illustration style, and excellent suggested activities. I think this is the kind of learning young kids will love.

Sampled from a four book series, WAVES is an easy-to-grasp intro to basic science concepts. Starting with the idea of a human hand waving, Diehn leads readers to a broader, deeper understanding of energy and waves through illustration, observations and explanation.

Waves is a cool little non-fiction tribute to all the different types of waves. From flags waving in the wind to microwaves cooking your food, the cheerful illustrations make this subject a whole lot of fun! It also shows other titles in this science series. Great for a science-y storytime!

This is the first in a nonfiction picture book series that approaches Physical Science in a fun and engaging way. I love the real-life application the author incorporates in the book--waves while swimming, the waves a cat makes while playing with a string, waves in the crowd at a baseball game, and more. There are a number of STEM activities throughout for hands-on learning. The illustrations are very fun, colorful, and cute. This would definitely be a great book for the classroom.
