Booklist - 12/01/2011 Part of the Science Explorer Junior series, this is a kid-friendly approach to physics in particular and the scientific method in general, arranging much of the information around places and ideas kids can relate to: the gym, the track, and sports. How fast you can run, throw, and jump are questions physics can answer and, of course, burning concerns for a lot of children. Five short chapters highlight how scientists and kids can find out how things work through experiments; Taylor-Butler keeps it real by holding onto the sports concerns of breathing and oxygen, running and speeds, and gravity. Informational boxes throughout offer motivational tidbits like “What happens to your body when you take a break?” or “You can use physics knowledge to get better at sports.” Photos of kids playing sports and simple but bright cartoon illustrations make this a lively read. Decent back matter concludes this book—a natural for classroom use. - Copyright 2011 Booklist.
