Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tina Chan
As the title suggests, everything a middle reader would want to learn about insulators and conductors is in this book. It includes topics such as explaining conductors and insulators and how they work, discussing lightning, whether air and water are conductors or insulators, the differences between semiconductors and superconductors, and what is next for conductors and insulators. This book includes experiments that demonstrate how conductors and insulators are used by incorporating items found in many homes. For example, building a simple circuit out of small objects such as paper clips, erasers, or keys, and a D battery, miniature light bulb and base, and three pieces of 18- to 22-gauge copper wire will test whether they are conductors or insulators. Readers will be amazed with the result. Color photographs and drawings illustrate examples. A glossary, list of resources for further reading, and an index are included. An enlightening and captivating read. Reviewer: Tina Chan
