6 year old loves this book Sept. 1 2011
By G. Bowerbank - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I gave this to may son for this birthday- he loves science, and inventing, etc. He loves this book, and even his younger brothers enjoy it because of the great pictures in it. Some of the explanations go over his head, but most are explained so that he can understand how they work, it is great book, I think he will love it even more when he is a bit older.

An Excellent Resource for Elementary-School Science Teachers May 21 2012
By Jan Peczkis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This single-volume resource is packed with well-illustrated, lucidly-presented information. It also has a glossary of scientific terms.

Each foldout page examines a specific topic. Every one of these can be used to launch a scientific lesson. The topics include basics such as electricity, magnetism, Newton's Three Laws, simple machines, bicycles, trains, the workings of the internal combustion engine, etc. A timeline of technological developments, going back to early human civilization, is included.

This book also includes more esoteric topics such as the workings of fireworks, ears and sound, wavelengths of light, power plants, flotation of boats and ships, manned space flight, workings of lenses and light bulbs, the Internet, bar codes, and possible future developments such as the hydrogen-driven bus.

Great book Jan. 10 2011
By Bob - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Books were purchased for 9 and 10 year olds. They were very excited with them.
I think the information was just the right amount for their age, not too much
but still enough detail to give them an understanding. Photos were great.

I ordered this book for my grandson. He's always asking how things work, so this book is GREAT. It would be good for any student from ages 7 to 100! :o)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great book, captivates the attention of my 8-10 year old boys, rather than sitting in front of the TV
