Synopsis

Simple Mechanisms by Ade Deane-Pratt

Combining Science and Design and Technology, this series examines simple machines and where we can find them in everyday objects. A scientific explanation with the help of annotated diagrams and illustrations is followed by examples of objects that make use of the various simple machines such as pulleys, gears and wedges.

Reviews

Easy to understand and supported by some excellent photographs and diagrams which are useful in understanding the complexity of a range of everyday machines. School Librarian

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
